Fun With Distress Inks

Friday, 5 December 2014

Hi There!

I played with my distress inks this afternoon. I just love the versatility of these inks. The more I use them, the more they surprise me with their results. One of the uses of the distress inks is making  scenes with the help of sponge daubers or/and ink blending tools. I tried my hand at creating an autumn scene inspired by a real photograph I found on the internet.

Here's my card:




And here's the picture it got inspired from:


The Tim Holtz distress inks used here are- Mowed lawn, tumbled glass, salty ocean, fired brick and spiced marmalade. Have also used a couple of memento inks-dandelion and tuxedo black. Added a few splatters of watered down inks using a paint brush.
Sorry, I don't have the step-by-step pictures of the process because it was just meant to be a trial and I had no idea how it would turn out to be. But after it's completion, I'm quite satisfied with the way it looks.

The tree trunk and the smaller tree-silhouttes are hand-drawn using a black marker. The leaves that appear to be blown outside the framed scene are stamped(hero arts leaves stamp set), fussy cut and coloured with distress inks.



So, that's all about this card. Do let me know what your views are. :)

Linking it to the following challenges:
1. CAS(E) this sketch#102

2. Virginia's view challenge--All things distressed

3. Casology#124-- Old ( Well, I have used distress inks here, and 'distressed' means 'old', so with that logic, I hope that counts)
4. Addicted to stamps and more#124--- CAS
