From The Heart Stamps: Midweek Design Team Inspiration

It’s Wednesday and time for the From The Heart Stamps  Mid-Week Design Team Inspiration. Today, I made a Father’s Day card using the Hamlet PigWit “Tee It Up by From the Heart Digital Images.   I began making the background as shown by Tim Holtz in the June Tag of the Month using his “stripes” stencil.  Also, if you weren’t aware, Chemistry 101, 102, and 103 are now available through Online Card Classes.  This is one of the best classes to learn more about Distress Inks.

For this image I used Copics and added some Hickory Smoke distress ink to the edges. The circle die is by My Favorite Things.  One of the ways to make sure your colors match, is to make you own paper using Distress Ink, which I did with Barn Door behind my image. I created my own bricks by applying distress ink inside the embossing folder, running in through, then adding more ink when it’s out. Cool, Huh?


Hope we see you this week at From the Heart Stamps to participate in the Sketch challenge or the Stamp of the Month Challenge.  Happy Summer!
