I went to a shoebox swap this past weekend and learned a simple but effective technique to add depth to a sentiment. I stamped the sentiment on my card with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink using my Misti. Then I used my finger to apply Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink to just the bottom edges of the stamp and stamped again to get this effect. I love the shading it adds!
Every time I have gone to a shoebox swap I have used a different container (including a real shoebox!) for my supplies trying to find an efficient way to organize my materials. I think I finally found it! My daughter sells thirty-one and they have just come out with a craft line. This bag worked great!
And it opens like this! Everything fit perfectly inside!
My wonderfully inky friend Karren has a wide open sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Enjoy!
