Depths of Distress


Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show they are asking for individuals interpretations of 'depths of distress'.  So for me this meant using my new set of summer distress inks and my fab Stampotique stamps.  I'm really loving these bright colours.


Again I used the summer distress inks but I stamped the circles in Perfect Medium and coloured them with yellow ochre shade (270.3) pan pastel.  I stamped the Stampotique hanging hearts image in festive berries distress ink, the heart throb Stampotique image and the TH quote in black stazon.

Love your tags! The first one is definitely brighter. Love the sentiment! The second one....really cool, grungey feeling with this one! I like how you've stamped the circles in Perfect Medium and then colored them with yellow ochre pan pastel. That really looks cool! Your Stampotique heart, sentiment and character look good on there as well. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
