Be Something

Just playing with some different color combinations of Distress inks to create background paper. For this one I stamped the script background with black archival ink on white cardstock and then I stamped the swirl from the SU Baroque Motifs set ink versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Finally I laid brushed corduroy, antique linen and faded jeans distress inks on my craft sheet and ran the background piece through the inks.

The quote from the Quotopia set by Inque Boutique. I stamped it with brown chalk ink and added some antique linen distress ink around the edge of the panel. The flowers are also stamped in chalk ink then cut out and mounted with dimensionals.

Here's a side view of the flowers.

Also, if you're interested you can stop by the Artistic Outpost blog today and see my cards. What an honor to have Lisa Somerville ask if she could share my cards on the company blog. Thanks Lisa!
As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day!
