Dipping into the Distress Ink

I love all the oranges, yellows and reds of harvest time, so I decided to put them together using the distress ink technique I saw in Craft Stamper a few months ago. To find out more about that, visit my article on Gingersnap Creations.

I love this great image from Cornish Heritage Farms showing a Harvest cover of an old Saturday Evening Post. You'll see how I did something completely different with the same image if you stop by tomorrow.

Distressed Harvest
Stamp: Harvest from Saturday Evening Post line (Cornish Heritage Farms)
