Let's Get Inky and Messy

This is my third entry today, I would love for you to check out my two previous entries, similar and yet greatly different from this entry. Over at Fashionable Stamping challenges this is their second week for the challenge, Let's Get Inky and Messy. I had a session of getting messy and inky  twice this week. First,  preparing for my class on Friday and second was at the class, which was , Distress - How Far to go?  The card below is quite distressed, by ripping, tearing, crunching, blending Distress inks, spraying water then spritzing with Cosmic Shimmers, the mica effect doesn't show as well as in real life. I also stamped a few clocks and cogs to the background. The couple are from my most used set of stamps at the moment, from Kanban - Jasper set. they have been coloured with Promarkers, trying to use colours from the background. I'm missing being with all of the girls at FSC, but your all doing a wonderful job, as usual and good luck with your DT Call and for your NEW adventure -  VINTAGE STAMPING CHALLENGE  sister blog. I look forward to it's inauguration.
