Card Crew Challenge - April 17, 2016

Today the challenge is a simple one. Thanks to Pinterest, I was playing with an old technique, while I was watching "Vikings" on tv. I looked up and saw a scene where the colors in a misty forest were breathtaking. I tried to recreate that color scheme with my distress ink pads and was pleased with the serene look I achieved. The technique is simply to pull your ink pad across the panel. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Hickory Smoke, Peeled Paint and Iced Spruce. Then I stamped with the Tim Holtz stamp "A Tree Line" with Jet Black Archival Ink. I used the primary inking of the stamp and then offset as second generation stamping slightly behind the first, then wrapped a length of twine on the bottom.
