It's time for another challenge over at The Stamp Man and this time we would like you to get 'distressed'.....well not literally, but we would like to see lots of distressing on your projects. Don't forget that the winner of the challenge gets a £10 voucher to spend in The Stamp Man shop !
So, on to my card, I used the Aspects of Design, Classical Instruments stamp set (these stamps are gorgeous!). I started by using a combination of Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain DI on a piece of white card. I then stamped the guitar with black Archival ink, and also stamped the sentiment with the same ink. The background pieces were made using a Tim Holtz mask called Concerto. I blended various DI over the mask, and made a separate piece for the clef.
The paper is from the Tim Holtz Lost & Found collection ( I love these papers !) and the charm is from my stash and I treated it to some Espresso Alchol Ink. I was wanting something else to add to this card but I couldn't put my finger on it so left it as it was, but I still feel it's missing something.
Have fun with distress techniques over the next two weeks and leave some love on the DT blogs. You have until 9.00 pm on the 27th January to get your entry in.
Thanks for looking
