Wrinkle Free Distress

There is a new tutorial on Splitcoastampers called Wrinkle Free Distress (click here for instructions).  It looked very interesting and I decided to try it- even though I didn't have the same ink they used.  Here's my card:
This card features designer paper from the slab called Everyday Tango by Lisa Cohen- along with some pink stitching courtesy of my sewing machine.  The stamps used are from the SU set Delight in Life.
The main element on the card is a manilla cardstock tag that was colored with the Wrinkle Free Distress technique.  Super easy!  I don't own any Ranger Distress Inks, sadly- so I substituted SU classic ink pads and Fiber Scraps brand EZ Tint Walnut Tintz.

The SU ink worked well but was a little lighter than I liked so I moved on to the Walnut Tintz using lime green and rose.  That gave me a nice deep color that wasn't too much and wasn't too light.
And here's the inside in the picture below.  I stamped the flowers and carefully cut them and then adhered them with three dimensional adhesive foam tape.  A dab of Diamond Stickles in the center of all the flowers made them all really pop.
Thanks for stopping by... have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

Oh Boy! I have like almost every color of distress ink and this same stamp set, so I wonder... NAH. I will never, ever come close to a Tara card, especially in the sewing department. Simply delightful and beautiful. Hope you & your Mr. have a wonderful weekend.
