365 Cards Day 149 - Sponging ~ Creative Inspirations - Distressing & Charisma Cards - Tag it
We had a lovely day on the river at Oxford yesterday and fortunately the rain held off although it was getting a little chilly towards the latter part of the trip. Sadly I didn't think to take any pictures, but if any turn up from other sources I might be able to post one at some later stage.
This card incorporates a technique that I haven't really perfected as yet. It is distressed by sponging some Tim Hotlz Old Paper ink around the edges and then a little darker shade after I had roughened up the edges of the tag with a file. I then over printed the images with a spotty stamp in a couple of colours.
The tag was made from an offcut of card with a circle punched to make the reinforcement ring, stuck to the tag and then the hole punched through both layers at the same time.
The sentiment was computer generated.
I feel as though I have been tearing around for the last several days... I could just do with a little RNR!
