Welcome to our new challenge!
I had a heap of ideas for this one - especially using distress inks. There are many ways to keep a card clean and simple while using distress inks. I paired my inking with stencils, masking, and emboss resist.
I simply inked through a stencil (ARTplorations - Just Flow) then added a large sentiment.
This card took a little more time. I embossed the images in white powder then used distress ink over the top (emboss resist). I added a die cut plus embossed sentiment.
By tearing some paper, I created a mask for my distressed sand. I stamped my images, die cut them, then popped them up with foam tape.
The design team have fabulous inspiration over at the challenge blog. Hope to see you there.
I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -

Three wonderful cards that show your inking talents in different ways. I especially love the middle one with the white embossed flowers and ombre inking.ReplyDelete
A fabulous selection of cards Kylie. The stencil you've used on your first one is super, I love the onbre effect and the large sentiment fits really well. Your resist embossing has such an impact and your little mouse pirate is super cute.ReplyDelete

These are all wonderful Kylie! I love the inked-to-a-fade stencilled background showing off its bold sentiment and the emboss-resist floral is fabulous too. The beach scene is gorgeous but I must admit, I'm a bit worried that cake will taste a bit gritty!! Vicky xReplyDelete
