I saw this video tutorial from Justine Hovey on making Distress Ink backgrounds.  We were on the So Suzy Stamps Design Team together.  Justine has some wonderful ideas and great videos!

The minute I saw the video I knew that I need to do this without the tape.  I’m too lazy to do all the taping.  So, how to get around taping?  Make panels instead.  I can throw them away if I want, keep the ones I like…and never concern myself with ruining a card.

Justine made the panel very blended.  Mine aren’t as blended and I am OK with that!

I love making these and think they will look great as part of a card or other project.  Rest assured you will be seeing these in finished projects in the future.
