Hey everyone…sharing a card that I’m submitting for Lawnscaping Challenge #64, which is all about Distress products. I’ve got a range of Distress supplies from ink pads and reinkers through to stains and pens. I find that I turn to them more often than not, so how could I not enter this challenge?!

Challenge 64

Here’s my card:

I started by creating a background panel by using Black Soot and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. I swiped a bit of each onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water and then laid a white piece of cardstock onto the ink puddles. As I lifted the cardstock, the two inks started to blend and bleed into each other, so I heat set before dipping the piece into the ink again.

I repeated the last step a few times, until I was happy. Then I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Lucky Stars set with Versamark ink, and sprinkled over some silver embossing powder. I also stamped some of the small stars from the same set around the sentiment, added the embossing powder and then heat set the whole thing.

I set this piece aside, and grabbed some kraft cardstock which had been trimmed down to slightly smaller than my square card base. I smushed (is this a word?!) some Brushed Pewter Distress Stain on my craft mat, spritzed some water and with a clean brush, I flicked the stain onto the kraft piece.

I die-cut a star out of the kraft panel and foam mounted onto my Distress Ink background and then adhered the whole thing to my card base.

Thanks for looking 😉
