Shopping Our Stash Challenge 64: Technique Time: Try something new or revisit an oldie!

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well this Tuesday morning! It's back to work for me after enjoying a couple of days off!

This week at Shopping Our Stash we are asking you to try a new technique (there are so many neat things out there!) or revisit one you haven't used in awhile!  I have to admit this took me some time, but then I saw a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers about stamping with water or using water over distress inks!   I love using my Distress Inks but haven't used them in awhile and never tried the water application over it. So I followed the instructions somewhat and came up with my card for this challenge.

Ranger Distress Inks- Rusty Hinge and Worn Lipstick
Misc cardstock
Unity Stamp
Spica glitter pens
Basic Grey papers
MS star punch

Now we can't wait to see what you create!  Hope you can join us this week!
