May Challenge

Graduation Card by Laurie

Design Team Member Laurie submitted this Graduation card that she created for the May "Get Out Of Your Box" Challenge. She said, "For this project I finally used one of those famous distress inks! I got the pine needles distress ink for my birthday earlier this month and thought it only fitting to create a card for the giver with it. This is fellow DT member Stephanie's graduation card I made for her. I followed the ink application and water spray technique showcased in THIS video by Jennifer McGuire. I enjoyed using the distress ink so much that I've already purchased three more colors and plan to watch the whole series of tutorials for more inspiration. Now my next step will be to use them in my layouts!
