Parchment Lesson - Distressing Inks
The use of distressing ink and stamping was the subject of one of our recent lessons and I have only just finished this card as my homework. We used Tim Holtz distress ink - my colour was 'Dusty Concord'. We stamped the image and then 'drew' the wet ink with a brush. Our tutor gave us the pattern for the simple frame. It could be used for a photo - but I didn't. The 1st layer of background is a lovely suede effect from a 12 x 12 paper from Art of Craft. This is where our lessons are so we are lucky to have the whole store to search when we are looking for suitable embellishments.
I have stitched the frame with Miyuki Delica Crystal beads size 11. Silver lined Purple.
