Hippity Hop

Well, my first attempt at using distress inks is here!  I used a cuttlebug folder to emboss the card front panel and then I used the foam blender tool to cover the card in the beautiful chipped sapphire distress ink.  The stamps are from "Fishy Philosophy," and "Just Wanted to Say."  I used distress ink on the "tree" too.  For some reason, I like the look of this stamp as a tree.  I think it's really underwater vegetation but nobody has to know that:-)  The ribbon here is actually light blue but it kind of turned white in the photo.

After three days of organzing my craft area, this is all I have to show today!  Happy Monday everyone and remember to get your Ippity here!!

  2. I think your distressed inking in the folder came out great! I like that stamp as a tree too, but I haven't used it that way yet... you are inspiring me though! I wish I would finish my scrap room cleaning project! I am dragging it out....
