Day 3 of Distress Inks

Wow - my Friday playtime with my new distress inks has made cardmaking easy all weekend! Here's another creation I made on Saturday with some of the scraps and one of the backgrounds.

I used my Hero Arts scroll stamp (yes, again) and started inking the middle with shabby shutters, then hit the outsides of the stamp with peeled paint and faded jeans. I stamped it onto my cardstock and then spritz the cardstock with water. Afterwards I inked the edges again with shabby shutters.

Then I punched out a few scallop circles with a background that I didn't like and layered that onto a circle punch. Lastly, I found an adorable button from a bag of buttons I received at CHA Orlando and used a Hero Arts sentiment which I embossed with peeled paint ink and clear powder.

So, as I was taking this picture of the card....I looked out my window to see a little fox scurrying across my yard. I snapped a few pics as quick as I could and got this one of him sniffing around the tree.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope you're having a great day!
