Playing with Distress Inks

Here's something else I've made using a technique from my Tim Holtz book, by stamping Distress Inkpads directly onto a craft sheet, spritzing with water then pressing white card into it to pick up the ink. The colours I used were Faded Jeans, Broken China and Peeled Paint. The paper is by DCWV and I have inked this around the edges with a blending tool and Faded Jeans ink. The stamped sentiment and stamped buttons are from Papermania. Thanks for looking!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
