By the Sea

My friend Sharon, from Gingersnap Creations, posted a beautiful card and complete instructions, you can find it here. Then I saw my friend Evelyn post a card using the same tech, so I just had to try it. It's another version of distress stamping, using the Distress inks and the craft sheet, but the twist is that you actually ink up your stamp with the same mixture you have on your craft sheet! I tried a couple of solid stamps, and this one turned out the best. Ali, on Gingersnap, posted a Rainbow challenge, so following Sharon's footsteps,I used the lighter, brighter inks with great results.
Stamps: saying is from Seaside Stamps, shell is from Another Stamp Company. As always, thanks a bunch for stoppin' by.....hugzzzzzzzzz

How beautiful, Gerrie! It came out wonderfully! Love the color palette. I think I may have to make some more of these after seeing yours and Evelyn's.

Such a clever idea to ink up the stamp from the same puddle of ink. Lovely card.
