Lawnscaping Challenge is hosting a new challenge with theme “Distress” and inspired by Audrey Tokach’s approach in using Distress Ink for solid stamps, I decided to use the same approach to make a Clean and Simple (CAS) Distress card.
I am sticking with shades of green for this project as I am also participating in one of my other favorite challenge blog over at Addicted to CAS, which is hosting a theme of “GREEN” for this week.
So, here is my creation,
First, I wet part of the card which I intend to watercolor as the background. I use Tim Holtz Scattered Straw Distress markers and watercolor part of the card to form a simple background.
Next, I color Lawn Fawn clear stamps with various green Distress Markers and stamp to form the image. I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles for the various green shade for this card.
Lastly, I used the sentiment “I’m Stuck on You” and bend it slightly to form a curved sentiment. Using Versafine Olympia Green, I stamped the sentiment on the card. Lastly, I edged the four sides of the card with Versafine Olympia green to form a simple distress aged paper. When the four sides of the card is dry, I adhered to the card base with foam tape.
There you have, a distress, vintage card made with a CAS style…lots of white space!
I hope you like this and try out with inking your stamps with Distress Markers. There is another project I did with using various distress markers to ink a stamp.
