FWF: Distress Inky Stripes ~ Unity Quick Tip

Hi all! I've got a super quick card to share that I was inspired to make by a video that Angela posted on the Unity Facebook page!  I had to make this card in less that 20 minutes as the hubby and kiddo impatiently tapped their feet waiting for me. The good news is this technique is really simple and produces great results.  The better news is now I have a 45 minute car ride to my mother-in-law's house to blog about it!!

Go check out the video for a tutorial but the basic concept is to use some washi tape or other low tack tape to mark stripes on your paper and then use Distress Inks to fill in the colors. I used watercolor paper and sone Donna Downey Unity stamps to create my piece. The card base is embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and then distressed and the front panel is popped up on craft foam.

I hope you enjoyed this quick Friends with Flair project!  Go check out the video and try it out! See you next time!  Bye!
