Digital Two for Tuesday 151

Today's guest hostess is Joyce.  Joyce has shared with us a beautiful Distress Resist card that she has designed.  I love the red accent on the bird and the lovely soft tones of the background.

Here is Joyce's Bio in here own words.  "My name is Joyce Lofton (aka Joynana). I am the mother of 2 and the Nana to 4 lovely young ladies. I work every day and don't get to craft much during the week, but I do make up for it on the weekends. I have been blogging for 3 years and have done some kind of crafts since I was very young. But, I started scrapbooking in 2005 when I wanted to put something together for my daughter who was graduating from nursing school. About the time that I started blogging I was introduced to card making and copics and believe me I was not impressed by either. But, after checking out lots of blogs and seeing the things that were being made, I knew that I wanted to do this. I have been hooked every since. "

A description of her technique: "I love trying new techniques and always have several projects in the works. I love challenges and enter as many of them as I can each week.
 My technique this week is DISTRESS RESIST. In my search to find out how to do this. There are several different styles.  First I used versmark to stamp my tree branches/leaves and covered that area with clear embossing powder, then used the heat gun to emboss it. After that was done I used Tim Holtz distress inks wild honey and faded jeans with a sponge applicator to cover the embossed areas.  Using  a piece of paper towel I wiped off the excess ink and the emblossing comes through beautifully.
I colored this beautiful bird with my copics E31, G24, R22, Y13, Y11, Y17. the background stamp is from Studio G. the sentiment is from the $1 bin at Michaels and the card stock is from my scrap file. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch that I recently purchased and used the faded jeans ink around the edges of the image. I really like how this card turned out and can't wait to send it to a friend who lives out of town."
