Loving distressing inks

Lawnscaping Challenge #28 is having a distressing ink challenge this week.

Now, I love me some distressing ink!  lol  So fun to play with and so much you can do with them.  Here's the card I came up with:

LC#28
I distressed the background paper with peeled paint.  I stamped, distressed, and watercolored the focal image in peeled paint with a touch of stained walnut and iced spruce.

It took me all day, but the end result was worth it.  Thanks for looking and good night.

Fantastic project...I love how distressing turns a regular card into a card filled with dimension and interest that is subtle. You really achieved this with this lovely creation.
