the post-man (distress inking)

Another episode of inky fingers.  This time inspired by the Postage Challenge over at Moxie Fab as well as the Man-tastic Tuesday Trigger.

Don't ya just love the names of Distress Inks.  Barn Door, Tumbled Glass, Blue Jeans - how real life down-home-goodness are those?  I prepped my white panel by BG stamping with text, distress inking, Glimmer misting and water spattering it BEFORE dry embossing it with the Tim Holtz Postal folder.   Then I ran the Chipped Sapphire over the raised areas to highlight them.

Before attaching the panel to my card base I added a heat embossed scrap of recycled vellum envelope and a scrap of the sticky paper stamps (stamp waste?  as in sequin waste?) come on stamped with my sentiment.  Quite in keeping with the postage theme, eh?  Oh, and a circle punched from some packaging.  A bit of stitching to keep the vellum in place and voila.  Pour tou.

Happy Tuesday.
