Just Friends Card with Pam Bray

Hi!!! it is Pam today on the SinCity Stamps Blog....I am going to share with you a very simple distress ink technique to make your "Just Friends Card" with. So to start with get your SinCity Birds and Clock Stamp Set and Art Journaling with Terri Sprouls Stamp Set,

Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe , and Tim Holtz Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Broken China Distress Inks

To begin with I used a Couture Creations Scallop Nesting Die and Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe print paper to make my circle, I inked the edges with Wild Honey until I achieved the look I was after

I did the same technique only this time on the largest circle from Couture Creations Nesting Circle Die Set using Fired Brick and Broken China and cream card stock...

I then started stamping my filigree from the Art Journaling with Terri Sprouls Stamp Set randomly on my distressed circle with black ink....

 until I got it completely covered...make sure to let the stamp go off your circle so it doesn't look so uniformed.....

 I adhered it to my distress scallop circle....

Taking the scraps left from the printed paper that was left over from the scallop circle I stamped my bird in flight from the SinCity Stamps Birds and Clocks Set using Tim Holtz Embossing Ink and American Craft Navy Embossing Powder. 

Once I had my birds embossed I inked over them with Tea Dye Distress Ink to give them a antique look though remember embossed images act as a resist so the ink only went on the light printed paper to darken it up.

I fussy cut each bird image out and layered them together with pop dots to place on the front of my card...

Here is a closer look at the bird in flight.....

I took a piece of scrap paper and inked it with Broken China....

Stamped "Just Friends" to the top and added small small filigree to the top with Tea Die ink. I trimmed and  added it to the front of my card with pop dots.

I hope you are encouraged to get your SinCity Stamps, distress inks and play around with a super easy technique to make a fabulous card.....Hugs Pammejo
