Think Ink Artful INKables Challenge #28

Greetings and salutations! I am thrilled to say that I am the “Challenge Picker” (my own phrase) for the latest Artful INKables Think Ink Challenge. As if the interview from August 20th wasn’t exciting enough! So what did I pick??? Well, for those of you that know me, I love to distress pretty much everything. So my challenge is called: “Distressed out!” Tear it, ink it, sand it…anything and everything to distress your project. Wanna see mine???

AI-Featured-Stamper-1

Of course, these are Artful INKables stamps! And, if you decide to play along and you use AI stamps, you get an extra entry!!! I really hope you do join in!

Now, about my card… I used only ONE piece of cardstock here! I just did different things to the 3 pieces I cut!

AI-Featured-Stamper-4 First, of course is the centerpiece. This awesome Chess Piece is from the Into the Moonlight set. I colored it with my EK Success Watercolor markers. Only 3 shades of brown/tan, actually! Then I inked it with Antique Linen Distress Ink and edged it with Walnut Ink Distress Ink…after tearing it, of course!

AI-Featured-Stamper-2 For my background, I crinkled up a large piece of the same cream colored cardstock (Prism), and rubbed Antique Linen and Walnut Ink all over it. Then I cut it to fit on the card. The reason I didn’t cut it to size first, is because after you crinkle the paper, the size changes because of all the bumps and ridges you created. It’s just easier to do a bigger piece first and then trim off the excess.

AI-Featured-Stamper-3 Then I took a strip of the cream stock and stamped this fabulous swirl that’s from the Fictionally Inspired set. I rubbed on the same 2 colors of Distress Ink on it as well.

Since crumpled up paper is hard to glue down, I attached it with antique copper eyelets. I attached the strip with antique gold eyelets, just to change it up a bit. And last, I added a thin border around the edge of the card using one of the brown markers I used for the chess piece, after I inked it a bit with Antique Linen.

So? Inspired yet? I hope so! You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. I really hope you can play along with this challenge! Please visit the Artful INKables blog for all of the details!

And please be sure to stop by here tomorrow for the huge Smeared & Smudged release and then again on Thursday for a Birthday celebration…StampInsanity style!

Thank you so much to Artful INKables, especially Jackie, for giving me this fabulous and exciting opportunity!!! Have an inspiring day!!!
