Stay Curious with Distress Inks

posted in: Blog, Janet 0

Hello, It’s Janet with an easy to make card showcasing the Curious Cats stamp set by Visible Image and some Distress Inks. The written tutorial is below but you can view the video tutorial by clicking here.

Curious Cats Card

Background Colour & Shimmer

I am using Tim Holtz watercolour card trimmed to 14cm x 11cm.  Smooshing some Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet Distress inks onto my craft mat and picked up the colour with my card.


Because I wanted a brighter purple – so after Jeni dried the card I added more Wilted Violet. I spritzed on some Sheer Shimmer Mist in Sparkle over the whole card.


Stamping & Sentiment

Then stamped the beautiful cats eyes and nose with Archival Jet Black ink.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and stamped with the same black ink.


Finishing The Card

To finish the card I trimmed a piece off the edge, and added some purple glitter paper behind the cat panel and added this to a card base made with Bazzill marshmallow cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed the process video of this card.  All the products are listed and linked in the description at YouTube and here on the blog.
