This was a new style of card for me. I love these bird cages - they are from the My Mind's Eye -adore stamp set. This was my first attempt using distress ink in combination with water, stamping with my acrylic block, and using artisan tape. I like how it turned out. I think I will try a different method of applying the distress ink since the sponge dauber did not allow for much blending. I will try using a solid stamp, and see if that works. If it doesn't then I guess I'm forced to buy the blending tool. We'll see. Check out the video below to watch me make this card. Happy stamping!
