New Direction

Hello!  I am hosting this week's Free 4 All challenge and our team came up with "outside" as our theme.  Everyone is welcome to play along.  We would love for you to join us!  

I made a slimline card with Impression Obsession's Slim Scene Grass Border.  I will admit I got a bit carried away with my distress ink!  I stamped Distress Ink on plastic stamp packaging and spritzed it with water.  Using plastic helps direct the ink easier than dragging cardstock through watery ink on a kraft mat but even so I ended up with green a bit further up than I planned.  I hated to toss the card so I just kept going.  I used the same technique for the sky with a little better control.  I stamped the Scene Birds multiple times and added the Winds of Change Sentiment.  

 Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are getting some outside time!



  1. Love the schmooshed background you have created Angie, - it makes for a gorgeous card
    Stay safe

  2. So lovely + peaceful. Had you not said anything, I would simply have though you were aiming to have the taller portions of green ink resemble a treeline in the background. Either way, it's a beautiful design and one that feels like a perfect summer day capture in card form.
