Painting challenge


Good grief why does life seem to get so busy as soon as warmer weather hits? 
I've been CRAZY for the past few days! I need a break already...

Today's card is for the Painting challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts.

Instead of using actual paint, I used a paintbrush and
 some Ranger Distress ink and "painted" the ink on. 
*smile* 
Stamp is from Unity
Ribbon is May Arts, who also happens to be our sponsor this week!
Join us for a yummy prize package of gorgeous May Arts ribbon and trims.

Thanks for stopping by,

So clever to paint with the ink! This is a fabulous design--I just love the way the embossed black text pops against the rainbow background!

Dana, I love how you "painted" with the Distress ink. I really like how it looks but I know if I tried it would look like a toddler did it.
