CropStop Ink Challenge - Fall Frolic

Hello and good morning! I am hosting another challenge for the CropStop Fall Frolic! The Creative Team was asked to pick a project from our Gallery to use as inspiration for our challenges. I picked this amazing project by Majo for my challenge inspiration! I love how she used the ink for her background.

So my challenge for you is: Use distress ink in (at least) THREE ways on your project.

For my card, I used distress ink to create the orange background; I used distress ink to stamp the image and to distress my paper edges; I used distress ink mixed with mica powder to make a glitter mist to spray the doily; and I mixed distress ink with water to make a color wash to dye my wrinkle ribbon!

You can see lots of distressing and inking was going on here!

The music background stamp is from Stampin' Up and the collage stamp is Hero Arts. The printed paper is Basic Grey.

Go and get some inky fingers! As added incentive to play along in my challenge, I am offering some blog candy! Just leave a comment on on this post telling me that you are participating in my CropStop ink challenge and your name will go into my prize draw at the end of the crop! (And yes, I will check up to see if you've actually MADE the project. Y'all know I need to SEE the cool stuff you make! You can link it here if you wish.) The winner will be posted on my blog on 10/2!

Complete and upload your project, with "Ink Challenge" as the title into the "FALL FROLIC" album in the Cropstop Gallery, by the September 30th deadline to be eligible for the grand prize draw! The big prize comes from CropStop and you do NOT want to miss out on THAT!

Have fun Frolicking!
