I love the new colour Chipped Sapphire, the rich tones were perfect for this card:-) I used a few Tim Holtz and Hero arts stamps to make this .. and a load of distressing and embossing.

First I used Broken China and applied lots of ink to the right side stretching down to the bottom, I used some Chipped Sapphire on the lower right corner and made it dark as possible. Used a bit of Black Soot on the lower left corner and covered the rest with Walnut Stain. I then used a mini mister and sprayed a load of water so that all colours combine and run in together:-)

I used my heat gun and dried it well. Used the Cling dots stamp and embossed in gold, then I used the Ledger stamp and stamped over top. I also used my Versamark pen and drew on some distressed lines on the lower right corner and embossed that with gold as well.

Finally I used a few Tim Holtz stamps and created a collage using the same Distress ink pads.

Here's a close-up,

Supplies used:
Distress inks- Chipped sapphire, Broken China, Walnut Stain, Black Soot
