I had some fun combining Waltzingmouse Stamps backgrounds with Ranger Distress Inks today.  

You can make any shapes or patterns you like.  The possibilities are endless.  I started with a 3 1/2" x 5" piece of white cardstock and cut my pattern out with an exacto knife.  I then took each panel separately and inked it up with a Ranger Distress ink color. (not too heavy with the ink yet.)  

Next, I inked each pattern with Versamark ink and Clear Embossed it.  Lastly I added some more ink to each panel to give it a deep, rich color, and inked the edges with some Black Soot to separate the panels more.  That's it.

Here's a list of the inks and stamped images:

Stamps:  Heirloom Patterns, Off Beat Backgrounds and Eat Cake (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Inks:  Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge, Peacock Feathers, Walnut Stain, Crushed Olive, and Black Soot

Hope you're having a blessed week!!  We're finally out of the high temps and enjoying some 70's.  Doors and windows are finally open!!  Woo-Hoo!!

Happy Stamping my friends!!

Hi Tosh, the distressing is perfect on your card. Goodness, I had to stop and study it for several minutes and then I keep coming back to it. It's wonderful! So glad to hear that your central CA temps have finally started to wane.
