Kraft Card and Distress Re-Inkers - PaperArtsy Kraft Card Challenge






Over on the PaperArtsy Blog the challenge is Kraft card. A couple of weeks ago I went to Ally Pally and saw Leandra using the Distress Oxide Re-Inkers and decided to buy a few colours (lovely to have a chat with her too!). I remembered when I saw the challenge that Distress Oxides are supposed to show up well on Kraft. The other item I bought at the show was the Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform. My friend bought one too as they were an amazing price. Wow, I love it! Don't know how I ever managed without it and I am only just beginning with all the things I am sure I will be able to do with it. I thought this would be a good opportunity to use some large and detailed stamps and stamp a second time to get a really dark image, and go over any patchy areas again. I stamped the images on the Kraft card first and then coloured them in using little drops of re-inker and a small brush. For the background piece, I pulled the Kraft card through the drops of re-inker. The images are Lynne Perrella from PaperArtsy.

I am entering the PaperArtsy Kraft card challenge, details of which are here.
