Well, I didn't mean to take a blog break last week, but before I knew it, the week was up. I did play around a bit with inks, specifically, Distress Stains. I smooshed, splattered, and stained until my hands were covered in color.
On the layout below, I used the smooshed technique that I read about here. If you have never checked out Ashli's blog, aka soapHOUSEmama, you should. She is so inspirational and her tutorials are amazing! I stamped down my distress stamper and this is what happens. It splatters out across the page. I love it, but be warned, you will have little specks of ink on your work surface, hands, and even clothes. Messy, but oh so fun! I even shook out a few extra droplets on to my page, by gently squeezing the bottle, while giving a good hard shake towards the paper. I love getting dual uses from one product.
Have a good week!
