Distress ink cards

I recently won a set of Spring Distress Inks from Charmed Cards and Crafts, so decided to have a little play with them.  I rarely do what I call messy/inky crafting so this was a little bit out of my comfort zone but I did enjoy the effect and will probably make some more cards like this.

I used an aperture card as a stencil to get a perfect block of inked background on the card and then overstamped with some Hero Arts butterfly stamps and Versafine black ink.

I still need to do a bit of work on my technique but I didn't think they were too bad for a first effort LOL!!

These cards were my entry for week 21 of the 52 cards challenge on UKS, which was to use a new (to you) technique.


  1. beautiful cards Karen, I really like them...and well done for stepping out of your comfort zone :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
