For too many reasons to go into, I'm soooo... happy that the weekend has finally arrived. One of the reasons is the new Less is More challenge as I've missed taking part in these over the past few weeks.
I was on vacation for a couple of weeks with no internet access and then last week was so manic I didn't get the chance to create an entry until the end of the week. I also struggled to find the time to leave comments on more than just a handful of the other fabulous entries and for this I apologise. This week I hope to get around to you all to check out your creations and leave you some lurve !
Chrissie and Mandi have asked us this week to create a one layer card and use Ink, preferably utilising a style or technique we either haven't tried before or haven't used much.
I have all the colours of the Tim Holtz Distress Inks in my stash and use them a great deal, but using a craft mat and water spritzer with them is something I haven't tried more than a couple of times. Soooo.... I thought I'd have another try at this technique for my card today.
The DI colours used are Forest Moss and Broken China for the water spritzing/craftmat technique on the background and Rusty Hinge over stamped with Walnut Stain for the image, with Walnut Stain for the sentiment. The image was created using a set by SU! which my pal Annie gave to me recently, and the sentiment from a set by Dark Room Door.
I think I need a lot more practice with this technique and I'm going to enjoy trying it with lots of other colour combos as I like the effect.
Thanks for checking out today's project.
