Distress Bleed Technique Card

Good morning! I'm back to share a previously made card that I hadn't shared yet:

I also wanted to link this up with Virginia's View Challenge - All Things Distressed before it was too late!

I also thought I would link this up with this weeks Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything Goes:

For this card, I used a technique that I saw from Jennifer McGuire's blog (her post is HERE) - basically I inked up my image from Unity Stamp Co called Rejoice for our SILENT NIGHT {wit and wisdom} with a few different colors of distress ink, stamped it on watercolor paper, then stamped again with Versamark black ink. Then I misted it with water, and allowed it to dry, bleeding wherever the colors decided to land. I added a bow cut with a My Craft Spot die from some handmade paper, a heart cut with a Paper Smooches die, some bling, pattern paper, and a black mat.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
