Thinking inking!!



















Colour challenges really are my favourite type of challenges and this week the Play Date Cafe have chosen these beautiful colours for the inspiration.  I have been making so many Christmas cards that I wanted a change and after watching Jennifer McGuire's thinking inking tutorials I came up with this card.
 For the main panel I have used some white pearl Acrylic Paint on my stamp, when dry I added some distress inks and then I embossed the whole tile with Embossing Enamel.

















The Backing paper has been stamped with the Paper Art stamp in Brilliant white ink.  I am also entering this in the Wee Memories "Scrappy Saturday Challenge" this week which is "Anything Goes" and this months Hero Arts Challenge.
Sorry a very quick post today, I've had a busy week at work so am looking forward to relaxing this weekend, hope you have a great weekend too.
