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.
