I'm entering this card into the Atlantic Hearts Challenge -Sketch #220

Mix It Up #3, Distress

Hello there!  It's time for the reminder post over on the Mix It Up challenge blog.  Our theme is Anything Goes / Twist of Distress (ink or tool). 
 
I've used Distress Inks on the background.  And then I stamped and embossed some bubbles with clear embossing powder. Then I used a Distress crayon to add some color to the die cuts.  I embossed the seahorse and then used the Distress crayon to make the embossing pop.  Love how it came out. 
 
 

(Excuse my fingers--it was really tricky to get the card at the correct angle to show the embossed bubbles :-)

Tim Holtz Distress ink - Peacock feathers, tumbled glass
