Gettin' Grungy

Today's project is blast from the past.  In my previous blog life I participated in Grungy Monday by Studio L3.  Linda, who runs the blog, has created a wonderful community with whom it is delightful to explore the products of Tim Holtz. This card was in answer to a challenge involving Distress Inks.
This wonderfully easy technique enables you create a watercolor effect using Distress Inks, a stamp and a few sprays of water.  Begin by inking the stamp with various colors of Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I've used Tim's Stampers Anonymos stamp, Nature's Discovery #cms049, with Distress Inks Broken China, Spice Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Wild Honey. After the stamp is inked mist with water, just a couple of spritzes to activate the ink. Stamp the image onto the page.  For the background image, don't reink the stamp, just mist with water to reactivate the ink and stamp the image again. Voila, a lovely watercolor effect for your project!

Now, go stamp!!

Happy Weekend,
