Wow! 5 for 5! I'm pretty amazed..this will be 1/7th of the journey completed!! So this week Linda at Studio L3 chose Page 43.. Distress Powers. Now, I did have two jars, and had used them a bit, with some "eh" results. And after seeing the early posts, I went and got 3 more colors, and paid particular attention to step #4....(hmmm, a trend; patience!!!) and I will say this time I had much better results.
I used the Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans for the powers, with the Distress Embossing Ink...which does make a bit of a difference over regular pigment inks. Then I used mustard seed, dried marigold, spiced marmalade, milled lavender and dusty concord on the background. The stamps come from Tim (but you all knew that!) and the Flight came from Inkadinkado.
