Good Monday Morning!  Time for another Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Monday Challenge.
Today, the challenge is to make a card using distress inks.  I cut the shape from a Tim Holtz die cut. Then using various colors of Ranger distress ink I used the ink blending tool to put color on the die shape, blending one color into the next.  I used sepia archival ink to stamp the grid stamp by Studio 490, Wendy Vecchi's stamp line.  Then using black archival ink, I stamped the tree, by Penny Black.  I used vintage photo to distress the edges of the die cut.  The leaf is cut and embossed using a set from Cuddlebug.  I then used an unmounted stamp with veins to stamp the leaf and again used the blending tool to lay color on the leaf.  The background paper is by Graphic 45. The corners are ticket punched.  I used white Kaiser pearls and colored them with a Copic Marker to match.  The inside sentiment is by Inkadinkado.  The inside leaf border is by Fiskars.

Play with your distress inks this week.  So many possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great Monday.  Until later...............
