One of the techniques I learned in the Studio Calico Inked class was using distress inks with a water brush. I only had brown distress inks, so I went out and bought some additional colors. For this birthday card for my dad, I used a combination of Ranger's Vintage Photo and Crushed Olive to make my background (without water). To add some interest along the side, I punched two holes, put in some eyelets, and then added some thin hemp twine.
My sentiment was made with two different My Creative Time stamp sets: Fly Away With Me Sentiments and More of My Favorite Sayings.
To make my globe from Papertrey Ink's Destination stamp set, I stamped it with StazOn ink on watercolor paper. I then used Tumbled Glass and Crushed Olive distress inks with a water brush to color it. The plane and curvy arrow are also from Destination. I think I'll be using more of this technique in the future!
