Lost Without You


Good morning!  It's Holly posting, and I'm back to share a distressed collage-style card with y'all today.  I had been playing around with some watercolor inks and there was some ink left over on my craft mat.  Instead of wiping it off with a paper towel and tossing it, I smooshed some white cardstock all over it until most of the ink was on the paper.  I set it aside to dry and this gorgeous background is what I got.  

I inked up the new Butterfly Flourish Collage stamp from Technique Junkies with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and stamped it right onto that smooshed ink background.  This distress oxide ink dries a bit lighter than what you see with the regular distress inks.  So when this background was completely dry, it looked perfect with that distress-y background.  Instead of a dark bold black, it's more like a faded black or dark grey color over those blues and grays and pops of red.  It's just stunning with a vintage, distress, collage-style stamp.  I used the same Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to stamp the sentiment from the Lighthouse Sentiments set.
You can get this Black Soot Distress Oxide ink from Technique Junkies along with the stamps I've used here for a one-stop shopping trip.  Be sure to use this code, TJ10Holly, to save 10% off your order.  Enjoy your day!
