Let's Get Inky!

Trying my hand at some of the challenges during Paper Anthology's Creation Staycation on FaceBook, which started on Wednesday and runs through this coming Tuesday night (4/14). There are a total of *16* different challenges, four of which I was the hostess, but I'm trying to take time and play along with the ones invented by m'colleagues. Shari Morris is the QUEEN of Ranger products at our store, so she has asked to see cards or other projects with a Distress Ink background. Here's what I made:

Apart from the Core'dinations cardstock, basically everything on this card is from my stash of fun vintage goodies: a slidemount framing up a fussy cut 1960's auto from "Illustrated Motorcars of the World"; a torn receipt collaged with old trading stamps and a beautiful map of York, Pennsylvania. Here's the background without the collage:

Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans Distress Ink, blended quite randomly through a beautiful Anna Griffin stencil. With a little Hickory Smoke around the edges and over the top to unify the smudgey tone-on-tone goodness.

For the record, this will be my uncle's belated birthday card, as he is a huge fan of vintage motors and also has the most vivid blue eyes of any man I've even seen in real life! Hope you are finding time to be crafty on this lowkey "holiday" weekend. If you need inspiration, visit the Paper Anthology Facebook Page, where everyone is welcome to join the fun! ♥
