Lookout Point


My card for today comes to life after playing with Distress inks again.  I am playing along with a few challenges:  Splitcoast Inspiration challenge (pillow shown below), Addicted to CAS:summer and the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Simple card really.  The main panel was created by apply Distress inks onto my non-stick craft sheet, adding water and then running my paper through the wet ink.  I splashed some extra water on too for a more beachy feel.  When that was dry, I stamped the seagull and the brush with black Memento ink.  The side panel was done pretty much the same using Distress inks and water.  I think it would make a great masculine birthday card.
Hope you have a great weekend and thanks so very much for coming and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Gina K, Flonz/ Distress ink/ Memento bl/ pop dots
