2009-06-25 more wrinkle free distressing with homemade DSP


I still have the distress inks on my desk so when I decided on today’s sketch that I found at 2 sketches 4 you, that’s what I used.

I made my own DSP by starting out with the wrinkle free distressing samples I started the other day. . I used a variety of stamps from the Tim Holtz line from Stampers Anomyous and one stamp from Stampin’ Up that was a map background. A number of the lines and shmearing that you can see on the largest DSP are made with one of those fake credit cards that are mailed to solicit you to apply for a credit card. I took the edge of the card and rubbed in in the pealed paint distress ink and then randomly scrapped it across the DSP I was creating. In some places I took the side of the card like a pallet knife and swiped the ink across the paper.

This is really pretty relaxing and the DSP will match the rest of my project because I used all the distress inks to create it with.

and a close up of the bird. I stamped him on the same wrinkle free distressed paper that I had made. I made sure to save a piece that had not been stamped on so you could see a clearer image. I then spritzed him with water and dried with my heat gun to soften and blend the colors. After I assembled the card; I sprayed over-all with Pearl-X and a fixative for an all-over glimmer.
