Distress It

It's like in the cartoons, the calendar pages just flying off that calendar.  Honestly I am feeling the challenge this week is perfect because that time flying thing is causing me "distress".  I can't believe were are in the middle of September and it's another LRW Wednesday.  So, the challenge this week is DISTRESS IT, which means we would like to see Distress Ink on your creations.    

I happen to love every way you can use DI, but I think my favorite way is to "smoosh" or watercolor with it.  I love that I have very little control over it with these techniques and that it has such a wonderful organic look.  Anyway, here's my card featuring The Cat's Pajamas new Bunny stamp, Creep It Real -

I used Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet and Stormy Sky DI with some Gansai Tambi watercolors to my the background.  I smooshed the DI and put puddles of the gold Gansai Tambi on the paper and did the old blow it with a straw trick.  Remember that one?

I know the Girlfriends are going to rock this challenge, so head over to the Little Red Wagon and follow their links.  I hope you'll consider joining us this week!

  5. What a fantastic card!! Your smooshed background looks fabulous - and I'm just loving that bunny with his extra long ears!!
