Holiday Thinking Inking (with guests)!!! :)

I'm so excited that Jennifer McGuire has brought back her ever popular Thinking Inking class over at 2peas. Yay! This week the focus has been on Distress Inks and some of the fun things you can do with them.

I decided to combine all three of this week's classes into one card.

1. For the background I inked up my craft sheet and stamped my snowflake stamp into it before spritzing water on it and stamping on paper. I then added ink to the edges. (Inspired by Jennifer's Peace Card).

2. I added some color/shadow to the snowman with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using my foam applicator. I then used Hero Arts Raindrop Background stamp to give some texture. (Inspired by Jennifer's Deer Card).

3. I used distress inks with perfect pearls and water to paint the snowman's scarf and hat. (Inspired by Jennifer's Ornament card).

While I was playing my second son asked when he could try painting with ink too and before you know it this was taking place:

my little "thinking inkers"

So there you go. My first guest designers. Hee hee! :) We're obviously all enjoying Jennifer class. :)
