Everything Will be OK - Distress Ink Three Ways

Happy Saturday Junkies!  So glad to be able to share with you another May release before we move on to June and some more super fabulous releases!
For this project I decided to showcase a TJ sentiment stamp "Everything will be OK" using Distress Ink/Markers three different ways with a stencil to make the background!
Here are the three cards:
To start each card I first stamped the sentiment in Versamark Black ink, covered with clear embossing powder and heat set (on 2 pieces of Neenah Solar white cardstock and 1 watercolor paper).


For the first card, distress ink was applied through the stencil with a blending tool (in rainbow colors). Before removing the stencil I applied Versamark watermark ink through the stencil and the added clear embossing powder (after removing the stencil). Normally Distress ink would remain "wet" long enough to hold the embossing powder itself but for this technique, the time it takes to ink the stencil prevents this. I love the shine this creates.

The second card background was done using the Tim Holtz Marker Spritzer.  If you haven't checked this out it is such a cool tool! Each color of Distress marker used was loaded into the spritzer and applied (sprayed) onto the stencil creating the rainbow effect again except this time with a misted look!
The final card is a stencil mono print using the Distress ink minis.  This is by far my favorite technique! Check out my blog for a couple of tutorials on this technique!

Love the bright and cheery look to these cards, which are so complimentary to the sentiment, to send to a friend or loved one going through a rough time!
Thanks so much for joining me again here at Technique Junkies! Stay tuned for the upcoming June  releases and special Design Team blog hop next week!
Embrace Imperfection!
