CASual AMUSEment...


As soon as I saw Therese's gorgeous Muse card, I knew I wanted to get inky!  This card was created by stamping on a clear block then spritzing it with water and swiping the ink across watercolour paper, in Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers.  Once this was heat set dry, I flicked some water droplets and dried them too.  The die cuts are Memory Box Tall Birch and Woodland Bird, and the sentiment Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. After I posted on Muse, I trimmed the base of the tree to align it with the sentiment.

  6. Great blending and awesome color choices. You make me want to run and try those Distress Inks myself. Your splashes also turned out perfectly (which in my experience isn't always the case LOL).
