I made this card yesterday for a be inspired challenge on Cuttlebug Challenges. It was alot of fun! I had been wanting to try this techniqe for a while, and it got my butt motivated to do it! I took 3 distress inks ( broken china, tea dye, and dusty concord) and smeared them on my craft mat. Spritzed them with some water and then smooshed my paper around in it until it was covered. Then..as I am impatient, i zapped it with my heat gun to dry it. It looked beautiful with the mix of colors! Next step...I pulled out an embossing folder I bought a while ago and had never used...inked it up with walnut stain distress ink and embossed my watercolored paper. The end result was so lovely! I'm not sure that I did it justice with the card I mounted it on, but I did my best!
Today is cleaning day for me....I have gotten alot done already today, but not nearly enough! Hoping to get some more done after lunch so I can get crafty again tonight! And of course I can't clean tomorrow...nascar is on Speed all day! I must watch!
