Isn't this weather just the absolute BEST?!! Glorious!
I have been having a little play with distress inks - I was lucky enough to win some blog candy offered by fellow crafter Sylvia-Anne and I used the voucher to buy some DI's in colours I didn't have (amongst a few other things!! LOL).
So armed with the newly acquired 'Squeezed Lemonade' and a combo of other older inks (!!), I made this quick CAS card for a relative of mine who has been having a worrying time just lately.
Basic bright white cardstock with a column masked using torn post it notes.
Sponged Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold inks onto the panel, then after removing the mask, stamped one of my very fave and very old Agapanthus stamps on top.
Popped on a couple of pearls and a wee bit of sparkly on a couple of the flower heads, then layered onto black cardstock then onto white.
The sentiment stamp I really like - and I thought it made a change from the usual 'Thinking of You'.
