G'day Mate - Distress inks

Happy Wednesday!

Spring is right around the corner...soon time to hit those hiking trails again! I made a thank you card for the Ranger that leads us on our next educational hike.

Joy's Life stamps (Lots of Pun)
kraft cs, memento ink, embossing powder,
Tim Holtz Distress inks (shaded lilac, mowed lawn)

It's so much fun playing with distress inks, here I smeared some ink on a non-porous surface, spritzed it with water and 'smashed' my cardstock face-down into the droplets of ink.  press down, lift up and dry with a heat gun or let it air-dry. that's it!

Thanks so much for stopping by, check out the Joy's Life dt blog for more inspiration from the team.

Enjoy your day!

I wrote this post while designing for Joy's Life.
