Sepia Smokin’ Gun

Hello! I am sharing my latest Smeared Ink card with you today. I spent a lot of today cleaning my craft room (not quite done, but it’s gettin’ there!), and I wasn’t really in the mood to color when I finally sat down to create. I decided instead to give the images a sepia kind of wash, and age the heck out of it. Got my fingers all nice and inky!

I used my Distress Inks, of course, in Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, and Black Soot. I used cosmetic sponges to apply the colors. I really like the way the distressing turned out! I used Walnut Gold and Black Gold Glimmer Mist on my background. And yeah, I’m totally obsessed with the “site” stamp so I am using it on everything! And I topped it off with my favorite border punch by Martha Stewart.

I hope you can see the glimmer here. It looks fab in person, but it is so hard to photograph!

This is really cool Alison! I need you to teach me how to use Glimmer Mist. I have some of it but I'm just never sure how to use it.
