I've always been a fan of distressed looking stuff. I guess that is why I love old barns so much, especially the ones with the paint peeling off, big holes in the sides, etc. My sister and I went shopping for something to put her television on a year ago. I was loving all the faded distressed stuff. She hated it! LOL ... She likes the bright unblemished wood colours. I know how distressed inks look on wood, but I wanted to see what they would look like on watercolour paper.
Yesterday I got out my distressed inks and made the backgrounds for several Art Trading Cards that I'll be sending to people to finish. I think they came out okay. It will be interesting to see what they do to them. Part of the image got cut off by the scanner; that's why they look smaller.
It was fun going to Hobby Lobby this past week and helping my sister to pick out a frame for a drawing I did that my mom called dibs on for Christmas. My half of the gift was the drawing; my sis had to frame it. I think I got the easy end of the deal. It came out great. I'll take a picture of it after she opens it for Christmas.
