First attempt at Distress Inks

SO my crafty new year’s resolution was to try out Distress Inks.  I was advised to start with light colours to start with, so I bought ‘Old Paper’ and ‘Spun Sugar’ by Tim Holtz, and a blending tool.

 

The first card uses ‘Old Paper’ and an image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.

I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge – Song Inspiration.  This engagement card is inspired by the song ‘Make You Feel my Love’ by Bob Dylan, more recently covered by Adele.

This next card also has an image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.  This time, I used ‘Spun Sugar’ Distress Ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday – Week 240

The last card has some distressing aswell, but not with inks!  I used some Core’dinations black card, and distressed the edges with a scissors to show the white core.  The image is from Mo Manning (I use this one a lot!), coloured with Promarkers (Cool Grey 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5).

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers – Monochrome

I attended the above wedding over a week ago, the day after Christmas, but with it being a busy time, I only got around to making the card yesterday!  My gift for the couple was 120 cakepops for the wedding!  The colour scheme was purple, so I got some purple lollipop sticks and purple gel food colouring from Cake Couture so that they would match.  You can see my tutorial for cakepops here.
