Smooched Metal Meets Worn Wallpaper by Judy Jackson

As a rubber stamper I have learned to appreciate the various qualities of many inks. Not all inks are created equal. Distress Inks are a unique kind of dye based inks and they are really fun to work with. I have a friend who came over and we spent the morning playing with Distress Inks and using several of the TJ techniques that use Distress Inks. She is a subscriber to the TJ newsletter but hadn't used her Distress Inks until recently.
So this is a card I worked on toward the end of the morning. I didn't get it finished until tonight. The metal tag near the top is where I used the Smooched Metal technique. I used the Brick Texture Fades embossing folder and that is where I used the Worn Wallpaper technique. I added some filmstrip acetate strip, a vintage photo, a ticket piece, Tissue Tape, various ribbons, and a chip board button from my stash to add different elements to the card. This card is larger than most cards I have created. It will likely be a "one-of-a-kind" card. It was certainly fun to make!
I used stamps from Stamper Anonymous and Inkadinkadoo.
I hope you get inky and creative!
