Today’s card – one of many gorgeous distress ink techniques! I may be out of town but I didn’t want to leave you high and dry without inspiration! It was inspired by my latest obsession – Instagram – and the crazy filters you can apply to images. This technique looks a little like it does that, so…that’s what I’m calling it!
