SinCity Scraps - Adventure Card with Faded Stamping

 Life is always full of  “Adventure” don’t you think… always be ready for the unexpected… This last few weeks have been a roller coaster ride with the last minute announcing of the store I work in closing; so I am so thankful for SinCity Stamps where I will be able to get amazing supplies and stamps from. Today I would love to share with you my “Adventure Card” using the “Wings Above the Rest” stamp set to make my card with.
 So gather up your stamps, both the wing and the background stamp from “Wings Above the Rest”  Stamp Set and your Memento Ink
I inked and  then stamped my image first on a paper towel and then on to my white card base to give it a more faded look.
Once I had my winged image along with my background image stamped, I used my Distress Inks along with my blending tool to ink the white card stock to create the background of my card base
When you are using your distress inks do a little of each color at a time, making sure to overlay your colors. HINT: Make sure to start in a circular motion off your craft sheet and work your way into the stamped image, it will help you not to get a rectangular image showing on your stamped project.
Notice the edges of the stamped and inked cardstock has also been distressed with a distress tool prior to placing it on the card base. Lastly, stamp a winged image on to a scrap piece of cardstock using black memento ink and color in with your Copic Markers, fussy cut the image out place it a pop dot once you have placed  your metal clock face to the top. 
I hope you try the technique of double stamping your images to give your projects a soft, faded look. Hugs Pammejo
