All Inked Up


Morning.  Thanks for bearing with me while I pursue my new obsession of inking my embossing folders.  I guess they have sat idol for so long that I am thrilled to have a new use for them.
I began this card by inking my folder with Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon.  I sprayed with water then pressed my paper into the wet ink.  When it was dry I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black.  It needed something more so I cut out a heart and pierced the edges for interest.

I am also adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES


Challenges 4 Everybody- ANYTHING GOES







Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps-Penny Black/ eb folder/ Distress inks/ Memento bl/ piercing tool
