Happy World Card Making Day!


Did you know that today is World Card Making Day? I wasn't planning on doing a post because ...well... because I don't ever make cards. But I was cleaning up the stuff I used for making the birdhouse when I got the idea to make a quick Halloween card with the leftover scraps. So here it is:
The witch girl on the front is painted on with Distress Ink. I'm LOVING the look of stamped images painted with distress inks so I think you will be seeing a lot more of that in my work - for awhile at least - until I move onto a new phase!
Supplies:
Paper, Die Cuts, and Stamps - My Mind's Eye Blackbird
Distress ink - Peeled Paint
Distress ink - Spiced Marmalade
Distress ink - Black Soot
Distress ink - Brushed Corduroy
Distress ink - Scattered Straw
Ranger Archival Ink - Black
