5/13 Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Technique

The challenge this week was a technique challenge - use any technique you want!
For more information go to
So.... I decided to try a new technique called Wrinkle-Free Distress. It's pretty easy and gives amazing results. Basically you swipe 3 colors of ink on a non-stick surface, mist with water and lay your cardstock in the ink. Use a craft heater to dry, then reapply and dry etc. until you have a look you like. It reminds me of easter eggs, water colors, and marbling.
I got the instructions from split coast stampers.
Here is a list of supplies I used:
  • New England Ivy Cardstock
  • Smoky Plum Cardstock
  • Textured Colonial White Cardstock
  • New England Ivy, Smoky Plum, Twilight Ink Pads
  • Key To My Heart Stamp Set
  • Childhood Portrait Stamp Set
  • For Every Occasion Stamp Set
  • Liquid Glass
  • New England Ivy brads
  • Smoky Plum Organdy Ribbon
  • New England Ivy Marker
  • Pop dots (the sentiment is 3D)
Thanks for looking! Please feel free to leave a comment.
