Citrus




I got the new limited edition tim holtz spring distress inks and I'm in love with them I used them last night to create this card. 




The background is inked with squeezed lemonade then randomly stamped with a stamp using peacock feathers and also edged with the same ink. For the foreground again I inked up some splodgeAway easy ink card in squeezed lemonade,then using a crafty individuals stamp I carefully inked using peacock feathers trying to avoid the butterlies as i wanted them inked with shaded lilac, i just about managed it. I then used a distress picket fence pen to highlight the butterflies and flowers then coated them in a mix of glossy accents and stickles. I used bazzill to matt and distressed the edges. i couldnt fint the right shade ribbon so i inked a white organza one.I'm loving the citrus colours and i know i will use these till they run out.
