Sharing a week with Joy Taylor: Day 4

Wow this week is going by so fast!!!  Today is Day 4 with JOY.  We decided to have a play with Distress inking.  Mine isn't too inky...but I like it! I used Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap for my trees just to see how they looked together. 

The color combo turned out rather vintagy...and well... Victorian.  Here's a close up of the trees.  I used my Copic maker #RV95 to color the pearls, I think it matches pretty good.


I inked the Season's Greetings Trees by pressing the ink pads onto my craft sheet.  I walked the tree in the ink to pick up both colors, gave the stamp a spritz of water, then stamped them onto white cardstock.  I cut out my hills from book text, edged them a bit with Frayed Burlap and put them on the card.  Oh and I lightly stamp the background of the card with the Starry Sky stamp (I just swiped across the stamp with Soft Sand shadow ink).  I added glossy accents to the centers of all the little stars.  

Ok, enough of my card, you need to head on over to see what JOY has created for today.  

ENJOY!!!

Those trees are so absolutely gorgeous. The colours look they came directly from an antique scrap.
