Also thought I'd take part in the new challenge site Saturday's Workout which this week is to use distress inks. I've been meaning to practice colouring with my distress inks for a while now so thought this was as good an opportunity as ever. Dug out one of my old stamps for this, a flower fairy.
Turns out I need way more practice and better/different paper. It was going o.k until I tried to distress the edges and ended up putting too much on so then I had to keep going and add more to hide it! Hopefully you can't tell and it looks like it was intentional! I think it looks o.k at a distance just don't look too closely o.k, LOL. (The card edges and ribbon is a lovely shade of plum but for some reason looks brown in the photo)
