Today i have a card for the Think Ink challenge at Artful INKables.  the challenge is to use some sort fo sewing on your card.

I used one of the large stamps from the Artful INKables Steampunk Sara set – one of my faves!  i decided to ink it with two different inks – i have a lighter color distress ink (can’t for the life of me remember which one) in the center and then i inked the edges with peeled paint distress ink and stamped it.  i inked and distressed up the edges and boom – done.  love it!  had i been clever i could have added a really cool TH time piece but i forgot i had them 😛

my edge here is fun i think.  i poked the holes and then stiched by hand. then i tried this cool stuff i got recently from Art Institute Glitter – it is called Earth Elements.  this one is Pebble and it’s this weird cool funky textured sprinkling stuff that smells good too!  it is very organic-ish.  i did breakdown and buy the earth elements glue too so i don’t know if other glues work but i do think this stuff needs something more than sticky strip! 

i hope y’all can jump over to see the Think Ink challenge and join in!!
