Paper Creations Ink Guest Designer!

It was such a sweet surprise to be asked to be the Guest Desiger for Challenge #8 at Paper Creations ink. I have to tell you, I was a bit apprehensive because I was going to use digital images! I was so worried I'd not do it right. I only have an ink jet printer, so I took the images to a copy shop and had them printed using their laser printer. That was a good choice because I could use my distress inks!

Here are the details on this fun challenge if you'd like to join in the fun! The theme is Vintage/Distressed. You can use any image you'd like. It can be an ATC, scrapbook page, card, or other crafty entry as long as it has paper which you've incorporated into the challenge of Vintage/Distressed.

The challenge runs fro today until Sept. 18. There is a nice little digi gift certificate prize for you, too! Come on, give it a go!

Here is my card for inspiration:




I used paper from several different manufacturers. The CS in Bazzill. The large pearls are Martha Steward. The small pearl string is from my stash. I used Distress inks to ink the background papers as well as color the stamped image. The corner is by Dress It Up. The tag is from K & Co. The flowers, I believe, are from Prima.

Thanks for stopping by!

Chris
