For the card I made I chose the Destination Stamp and I stamped it out on white card stock. I really thought that this stamp lent itself to a more distressed look so out came my Ranger Distress Ink pads in Frayed Burlap and Iced Spruce. After getting out my trusty 15" x 18" Inkssentials Non-stick Craft Sheet and spreading it out, I inked up the foam on my ink blending tool. Starting off the paper on the craft sheet I worked in circular motions inking onto the stamped image.
I'm always looking for scrapping goodies at the dollar store and at thrift stores. These are really wonderful places to find scrap stuff at a low prices and it really causes you to look at things in a different way. I've found so much cool stuff that I almost hate to share the idea with you!! LOL (jk) I really scored big at my local thrift store the last time I was there. I found this wonderful book of sheet music for 50 cents! The music pages already had an "aged" look to them but I added a little more along the edges of the sheet I used on this card.double sided adhesive foam pads to the back of the sentiment to raise it up and give the card more dimension.
