Whilst hopping around the blogs leaving comments last week, I came across this lovely card with butterflies by Shirley (Paper Creations by Shirley), and it really inspired me to get my distress inks out and have play with them. It seems such a long time since I made a card in this style and it was great fun. Thanks Shirley.
I thought it was time to ring the changes because I've made a few CAS cards recently, so I'm peppering the blog up with something a little different.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Rogue Redhead Designs - Use a stamped background
Phindy's Place - Distressing
Make it Colourful - Autumn Colours (the inspiration pictures are gorgeous and I think I captured the main colours)
Fun with Shapes and More - Self-made Paper
Crafty Catz - Punches and Dies
Distress Inks: Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade
Distress Stain: Picket Fence
Stamps: Waltzing Mouse 'Text It', Clear stamp flourishes, Impression Obsession Clear stamps 'Flourishes', and a Crackle background (sorry I don't know the make as I bought it second hand)
Dies: Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Garland and the branch bits from Autumn Gatherings
Perfect Pearls mister - Bronze
Gold Liquid Pearls
Green square brads, Raffia and Ribbon from my stash
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I'm off to rescue (or probably re-make) a project that went wrong in the overnight drying process.
Thanks for looking,
