Today I had an urge to re-visit my neglected distress inks.

I just took a few colours of distress inks, covered the atcs and flicked some water on them.

This one has a piece of embossed acetate over the top of the stamped Teesha Moore image which has been outlined with a smudgy pencil.

Again more acetate, this time attached with brads and the edges of the acetate coloured with moss pearl DecoArts dazzling metallics.

I stamped this image directly onto the atc and was going to re-stamp it and cut it out without all the fiddly hat pieces, but I quite liked how it looked so I went with it and outlined some of the image with a white posca pen.

And finally very simply just an image stamped directly onto the atc, words stamped and cut from white card.

What great atcs - love that TM stamp. I was only thinking I haven't used DI's for ages too.

Smashing ATCs Sam! I'm another who's been revisiting my DIs a little this past week. It's been ages since I touched them! Love what you've done with them here and fab images you used. I even like the TM one, lol!

Funny how things we used to love, love, love go out of favour/fashion. I guess that's what keeps the craft industry going! Anyway, fab ATCs Sam, esp those Teesha faces.
