Blended Distress inks and Stampscapes stamps
Archive for October, 2013
I wanted to make a special card for my niece Carmen whose birthday is today. Jennifer McGuire showed this technique on her blog:
So this is my take on it
I had thought of calling my blog “it used to be plain white card stock!”
I really like how I can make something out of a piece of white paper.
This technique uses the Picket Fence Distress Stain applied directly to a stamp then paper and dried. It then acts as a resist to the colors of Distress ink applied over top. Accented with honeycomb and black script in Archival ink
Same technique but different colors of Distress Inks
This stamp is so detailed and fancy, it doesn’t need much else in terms of embellishments
We live in a farming community, although we do not farm ourselves. Everyone is thankful when the harvest gets finished before the snow flies. The ground is white today but hopefully it won’t stay
Enjoying a day off, practising all the different techniques from Creative Chemistry 102.

I was a little heavy handed with the blending solution and got quite a bleached effect in areas, will practise again
technique still needs work!
Getting better at it!
