Friday Focus — Distress Inks #1 & Online Card Classes Flash Sale

Hi all! Happy Friday! Before I get to the card and video for today, I wanted to give you a heads up. :)

We’re having a Flash Sale at Online Card Classes this weekend. All past classes are $5 off the regular price. So if you’ve been wanting to try out a class, now is the time!

For today’s video I wanted to start a new Friday Focus miniseries focusing on Distress Inks. I think they are so fun and there are about a million different ways to use them. I played with them tonight and this is what I came up with…

To try the bands of color, I first inked up the Wide Stripes background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, sprayed it with a bit of water, and pressed some watercolor paper on the stamp. Then I took the stamp and stamped it onto a Craft Sheet, leaving droplets of color on the Craft Sheet. I picked up the droplets of color with a new piece of watercolor paper and it created these fun stripes of splotchy color.

Be sure to watch the video below if none of that made sense. LOL! :)

Anyhow, enjoy the video!
