Distress Ink Lifting

A while ago I watched one of Jennifer McGuire's awesome video's were she showed a fun technique wich she called : "Distress Ink Lifting".
I loved it to try this technique myself. And I have to say: it worked well!
So, this technique is recommended!
And here is my result.



I added some shine on the flowers, you can't see it in the photo, but it gives just that little extra.
I recommend a visit of Jennifers blog to see and hear her explanation of this technique:

Faux Metallic Stamping

Today I like to share a card I made with a technique seen on Jennifer McGuire Ink blog. It is called:" Faux Metallic Stamping".

You first have to stamp your image with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. After heat embossed it you have to color the images with a Versamark pen. Then you add perfect pearls and whipe away the extras.


Doing so you get that metallic look!
Fun, isn't it?!
