Stamp Your Story ~ inspired by Jennifer.

I was totally inspired by Jennifer's card on Monday's blog post at Hero Arts.  I don't have any Hero Arts Ink Daubers but do have Distress stain daubers... so thought I'd see what they look like done, using the technique

Yep they worked!!!!  I did get a bit carried away using a variety of distress stain colours.  I then used one of the lids and some Walnut stain distress ink to make some circles which I filled with a stamp from "Brush Strokes" as well as stamping the word Graffiti.  I added the sentiment from "It's your day" set and used some orange distress ink to colour the words. 

This was quite a fun card to make and really quick too.  Love using my new Hero Arts stamps.

Hello Dawn
I think this is fabulous, but then I would as I love wild abandonment on a card especially using fluid paints/inks. I can visualise an extension to this, why not add Acrylics alongside your inks using the top making the circles, to create a different texture, then you have a beautiful Mixed Media thing going on.
