Long weekends are wonderful aren't they?! It was so nice having an extra day off work yesterday. I got all of the laundry done, straightened up the house a bit, grilled steaks for dinner, cleaned up the kitchen, and still had time to play with my scrap stash. Boy could I get used to that! Thankfully summer vacation is just around the corner :)
Anyway since I had the day off and wasn't rushed for time, I decided to pull out my distress inks and play around with them a bit. I have a handful of different colors of distress inks but I usually only use the brown ones and only for inking the edges of the papers. I have other colors that have been begging to be used :D
This is just a simple layout and I might go back and add a title to it but I had fun using distress inks to ink up the chipboard stem and flowers which were previously white. For the stem I used the color "Peeled Paint". The darker red flowers are a combination of the colors "Aged Mahogany" and "Tattered Rose", and the lighter pink flowers are the color "Worn Lipstick". I also used distress Stickles in the color "Worn Lipstick" in the centers of the yellow flowers.
While I ended up with inky fingers (I am too impatient about letting things dry before touching them!) I love the look of distress inks and I foresee a lot more embellishment inking in my future!
Thanks for stopping by!
