You Are Fabulous...

Well I decided I'd have a little play with some of my new toys from last Saturdays craft show and I'd try and get a little "Inky" using the blending brushes from Inkylicious.  Now I picked up the brushes in June @ Doncaster but was a little nervous on using them until I watched the demo on how to do it on Saturday. So, armed with a couple of distress inks, a new butterfly stamp from Inkylicious and a circular mask, this is what I managed to do on the first go.....

I pretty happy with it, so I might have to give it another go soon but on flat card rather than a hammered base and try the sentiment a little darker although it really has not photographed well :-(

Less Is More: #31 Metallic ( ink pad and pen)
Flutterby Wednesday: 170 Open

Card Recipe:
Image: Flutters 1 from Inkylicious
Distress Inks: Tim Holtz - Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender,
Pearls: Hobby House
Silver pen, silver brilliance
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps Friendship Ticket Sentiments

Hope you all are having a good week, I'm just glad my broadband is finally back up and running and at super speed too...

  1. This looks lovely, I think that you'll get different effects by using different card finishes. Distress ink acts well on card which allows you to move the colour around a little. I think you're going to have great fun experimenting with ink. If this is the start, I can't wait to see what comes next! Super!
    Thanks so much

  2. It is lovely Jen
    I may have been tempted to bring the sentiment out of the circle slightly to make it stand out a bit more. Although it probably does IRL
    FAB card
