Ditzy-Craftymess - Daily challenge - 16th Jan 2012

Here is my entry for the DCM  Daily Challenge.   Anything Goes!

Anything goes with your favourite technique.
Readers of this blog will know that I am fond of the Emboss -Resist  technique and love to play with inks and my heat-embossing tool :)

This is a 5x5 piece of blue cardstock, stamped with decorative circles using Versamark and dusted with gold embossing powder. After heat setting the embossing powder I then rubbed some bright red and green ink over the card in random stripes and then buffed the ink off of the circles with kitchen paper. Some brown ink to follow and then some roughing up with course sandpaper. I was aiming for  a 'weathered paint' look. The blue card was matted on to an old torn page and then on to a cream background.

It's a shame the photo doesn't show  up the 'chipped' embossing that gives a really good distressed feel

This was chosen as the winner for yesterdays challenge: not at all bad for a Monday!

I'm off now to make some ATCs for the this months swap.  Have a good day.
