Creative Chemistry 103

If you know me at all you know I am a huge Tim Holtz fan.  I love everything distress and have such a hard time making a card or layout 'clean' without some type of distressing.  If you get cards from me you know exactly what I am talking about.
This technique was fun but because I used my Misti tool on the first one, the one that looks like Tim's example project, I didn't get the shadow I was going for.  I like how the Picket Fence distress ink brings out the true color on kraft cardstock and will be using this in the future.  Here is the one similar to his:

I liked this so much, and need so many cards this month, I decided to try this again but not use the Misti.  I used PTI and MFT products along with the picket fence distress ink to see if I could get the same desired effect.  I like this one better because you see a little more of the white shadow.
