Sounds really depressing doesn't it? Distressed Skies, but it's great fun really.
I caught up with Lindsay Mason at Cardcraft UK, Lancaster yesterday and she showed me the technique to make distressed skies. I've had a go in the past with varying results but apparently it's all down to the cardstock.
The 2 shown above have come out with different effects mainly due to the card base. A bit of a coating on cream card works best. I have all the current Distress ink pads so have had fun again. The gorgeous tree stamp is one of Lindsays latest designs and works so well for this scene. Once I have mastered this technique a bit more, I think I'll have a go at a full size Xmas card!
