Distress Ink Background


I used Twisted Citron distress ink to create this background over some white-embossed Hero Arts floral images. The sentiment panel was heat-embossed with white on a strip of black cardstock that was cut with a diagonal stitched die. I knew as soon as I saw the result that my Versamark ink pad needed re-inking because it didn't look as sharp as I hoped it would.

I'm sharing this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is
"Fabulous Florals" and they're featuring Hero Arts products.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Thursday :)

This is super pretty, Carol! Love the floral images and the pretty green color! Love the black paper thru the middle with your embossed sentiment! PS. My Versamark needs reinked too.....just have to find my reinker and that's a whole other story! TFS and have a great day! :)
