Distress Ink BG

I have been seeing this technique on blogs
for a month so I am trying it
Here is my effort

I covered the cardstock with distress ink
then misted the stamp ( a flower and Minnie Mouse)
to stamp into the dried ink
I had a couple of tries before I got what I thought is correct
Then I cut the best of the card piece to use
Now I feel I could use more practice .

  5. They are both wonderful! I tried this technique recently, but my 'ghosting stamping' was not so successful as yours (maybe I didn't leave the wet stamp down long enough, but even when it dried you could barely see it! So I used it for something else!) Love both the effects & the different colorways look great! Yay for you at trying something new and having it work so nicely! TFS & happy Misti.
