The challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil this week uses a technique that is new to me..distressing. I own several distress inks as well as a distressing tool but haven't really had much luck making them work. For this card I used my distress inks and a watercolor brush to paint the image and then sponged some ink around the edges to make it look worn. The background was done with a stamp using the same distress ink I used for the edges of the image. I'm guessing this technique takes some time to perfect :)
I work as a programmer but love to stamp as much as possible. My mother and I started a company that makes support cards for women with breast cancer. We wanted to make cards that would help family and friends provide support when they didn't really know what to say. The majority of the cards I make get donated to women diagnosed with breast cancer. The loves of my life are my dog and 2 cats (plus the stray I feed).
