Lacy Background using Distress Inks and Water
Distress Inks are made to work with water. Often you can ink an image and then spritz the image with water before stamping to get a neat effect. This works best with very simple images. I wanted to see what I could do to add some subtle distress ink colors to a detailed stamp.
The video shows how to get the subtle stamping and talks about what I did with the cards. It doesn't go through every step as the assembly of the cards is pretty straight forward.

Thanks for watching!

I really like this technique, Lisa. This would be perfect for making care cards for our church ministry. They need to be flat to keep down postage costs, but I always want to do something pretty. It looks pretty fast, too! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

These are such pretty cards.ReplyDelete
I think I need to try this technique. I have to use my distress inks more then for just distressing my edges.
beautiful cards Lisa and thanks for a great video to show us how you made the cardsReplyDelete
