A Little Bit Inky

Good afternoon. I have been having a lovely play with some of my Distress Inks and thought I would share one of my makes with you today - will have more shares later this week and next week too for some upcoming DT projects:o)

For this card I used a couple of Kanban stamps that I bought last week.
I started by inking a piece of cardstock with Milled Lavendar and Dusty Concorde Distress Inks and then overstamped with the floral image using Archival Black Ink. I then stamped the Foliage Frame and then trimmed the edges. This was then matt and layered onto co-ordinating cardstock.
I also stamped PB Script onto a larger piece of the cardstock and lightly inked the edges with Dusty Concorde before matting and layering onto the darker co-ordinating cardstock.

This also used:
A couple of ribbons from stash
Magnolia Swirl and Leaves Die
Felt Flower - Spellbinders Die
Martha Stewary Tiny Fliutterbies
Adhesive Gems from stash.

I had forgotten how much I enjoy making this style of card.
I hope you like it too :o)
