Distress Ink - Day 3

Hello papercrafters,

Here is today's creation for PoW using Distress Inks.

Today's project can be used as a bookmark or a tag on a scrapbook page. I'm not sure what this stamping technique is called ( if I find out I will let you know), I was shown how to do this about 14 months ago, it gives a nice colourful effect, solid image stamps are best for this technique.

Firstly you choose 3 contrasting coloured inks ..Today I chose Shabby Shutters (TIM21490), Weathered Wood (TIM20257)and Vintage Photo (TIM19527)Distress Inks.

You ink up your chosen stamp I used the flower from the Flower Set (4806). Starting with your lightest colour ink....I used Shabby shutters Distress Ink , then directly over the top of the same ink I tapped Weathered wood inkpad ( next darkest colour) onto the stamp a few times ..then lastly use the darkest ink which in this case is Vintage photo and tap the ink pad onto the stamp. Then all you do is stamp the image onto your Large Tag (4642) /card stock, and the image has a tri-colour effect.

You could try the same technique using just 2 colours. Ivory card looks good too , experient with different colour inks and card stock.

I stamped "Smile (4130) " in Weathered Wood. Then added a piece of ribbon .
