Sketch Challenge and Distress Inks
The Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge this week was yet another excuse to play with my Distress Oxide inks. When I saw the sketch, I instantly thought of the Stampin' Up! Medallion stamp. I haven't used it in ages and that is a shame because it makes such pretty and fast cards.
For this one, I inked the stamp with three of the Distress Oxide ink colors - Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick and Purple working from light to dark. I stamped on bookpaper and then misted with water to get that oxide effect when dry. You could also mist before stamping for a pretty, softer look.
I used Walnut Stain for the greeting, flourish and distressed edge. Find bookpaper at my Etsy shop: Lovely Layers Art
