Lots of distressy fun :) and ENABLING!

I just can't get enough of this Flower Bursts background stamp! So I white heat embossed a bunch and just inked them up with bright and fun distress inks. SUPER EASY! :) For this first one I used peacock feathers distress ink. The sentiment is from the Enjoy Today set from Market Street Stamps. And psst, it's being retired, so it's on sale super cheap! Ok, onto more inky fun!
This one was make with Squeezed Lemonade distress ink. This happy birthday sentiment is from PaperTreyInk.
This one was made with Picked Raspberry distress ink from the Summer collection.
And this one was made with Mowed Lawn distress ink from the Summer Collection. And for this last one, I used my Distress Markers to color the stamp. Super quick and easy, and a really cool result! Just color your stamp till your little heart is content, and then huff on it {breathe hot/moist air} and stamp!
 I used broken china and shabby shutter distress markers on this one. The sentiment is from the Gift Card Sentiments set from MyCreativeTime. There are tons more cool colors combos that would be fun. EEK! I just love this "hobby"!

  2. Beautiful card! Thanks for the inspiration. I actually have that background stamp but haven't used it yet. What do you mean in terms of inking them up after you embossed? Is it with the blender tool or something like that?

    1. yep...just distress inks and the ink blending tool with the foam applicator.

  3. Great all the colors of course! :)
