Distressed card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm playing around with some old techniques and this is what I came up with.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who was amazed by the distressing techniques showcased by Tim Holtz, but it's been a long time since I used my ink pads and a water mister...
The background is made by stamping G45's french country and a Magnolia background with archival ink. The ink pads I've used to distress are tumbled glass and chattered saphire.

I've also made my own glimmer mist by mixing ink refill and perfect pearls in a mister, also a technique that's just been lying around with all the great mists you can buy on bottles now a days.

I then took my stencil and moulding paste and made three places in a triangle, which I sprayed in a contrasting colour.

The rest is easy peasy :)

Saturated canary for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I hope 2014 have been blessed so far.
I'm here with a very simple card to make using a stamp by Saturated Canary from The Rubber Buggy.

I just coloured the image in the corner by the paper, cut it out and layered it on some background paper from the Divine paper pad 6x6 by Prima. That really made the card, just to top it of I made my own emellishment with diecuts and stamps and layered it on washi tape.

The sentiment is from a stamp set by My favourite things.

I'm loving the clean look of this card and you will probably see more of this design by me.
