This month's technique is distressing so it can be anything from inking the edges of your paper, distressing with scissors/distress tool or creating a whole distressed look background. Our uber sweet and talented teamie Mag has prepared a tutorial on how to create a distressed background using distress inks and let me tell you it is so much fun. Be sure to checkout the DT's creations as they are sure to inspire you.
For my card, I used 3 Magnolia stamps to create a scene: Bat TIlda, Spooky Fence and Boo sentiment. I also have blog candy until October 24 and will add this card to the loot! Enter for a chance to win the candy HERE which includes this card.
I used 5 different Tim Holtz distress inks for my background on watercolour paper: Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and sponged Walnut Stain around the edges. The card is framed by a Stampology border stamp and the Boo sentiment was stamped with Memento Concord Purple ink. Image was stamped on Xpress It with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with Copics and popped up on dots. I added a fabby bat charm available at Make It Crafty with a Wild Orchid Crafts red gardenia. Zoe has a wonderful selection of charms and you'll be seeing me use more of them. How can I pass up on Zoe's shipping deal when she ships up to 4 packages of charms for only $2.20!
