Distress Inking Technique

Hi all!  So I wanted to share another card/video with all of you.  Today, I am playing with some Distress Inks.  I love the unique properties that Distress Ink has when it reacts with water.  Recently I made a card that was for the Lawnscaping Challenge : Distress Addicts.  THIS is the card I made for that challenge.  So, I wanted to revisit that technique, and do a video tutorial on it.

I used the same distress ink colors Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio, and the same background stamp from Argyle Backdrops from Lawn Fawn, but my I changed up the sentiment, and left off the twine.

If I do say so, I think the first go 'round of this card as far as the background goes I like better, but that is the fun thing about doing this technique - you will never have the same outcome twice.

For my sentiment - I used the stamp set that Lawn Fawn designed for Simon Says Stamp last September for their Stamptember event.  Unfortunately, this set is no longer available for purchase, but I hadn't used this set but once ( in the video I said mistakenly said that I'd never inked it up ) and so I wanted to ink it up today for this card.  

So - if you'd like to see how I made this one from start to finish - I have the video below!!!  Hope you all are having a great weekend!!
