Hello Cherished Friend for DTDF

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a fabulous week ahead.

Today I have a little inky background inspiration for you using some gorgeous new MFT stash from 

Here's how I created my inky background:

I started by inking through a stencil using Versamark and then heat embossed with White embossing powder. Then I 'squidged' some Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Scattered Straw onto my glass mat - keeping them separate from eachother, spritzed some water and then picked up each colour separately using some acetate and then pressed onto the embossed panel, building up the colours as you go.

For the flowers I inked the background card with the same colours but in the 'traditional' way of spritzing the colours on the glass mat and swooshing the card onto it - then flicking water with my fingers before stamping the flowers with Archival Black ink.

Card Ingredients:

Distress Ink Colours: Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Scattered Straw
'Cherished Friend' Sentiment - Kaisercraft Friendship Sentiments 
Creative Expressions 'Delicate' Mask 

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
