Hey chick!!

Wow, I don't know where the time goes. Well a little bit of an exaggeration there as things are still a bit hectic with us and as ever its the down time that suffers, anyway I have managed to get around to playing with somethings that I got at the SECC Hobbycraft show in Glasgow.
I have coloured this image with some inks from imagination-crafts. They are similar to the distress inks but can be used the same as the Alcohol inks also. They have 12 colours and they are all inter blendable to make lots of colours. I have coloured the small flowers with the inks also.
The other thing is that they have neat mica powders that you can add to your inks while in the bottle, paint with them on their own or dust over projects like I have here. I stamped the swirls with black ink and then highlighted areas with my versamark pen and then dusted with the mica powders to make them more of an antique gold.
I am joining in with the guys on friday-sketchers Mumur has made a wonderful sketch for us to follow.
The beads on the flower are real fresh water pearls and they add abit of bling to the card. I have 3d glazed the sentiment to make it stand out abit more, apperantly a trade mark of mine as some of my friends have said.

Materials used:

Stamp from Sarah Kay.

Stamped swirls Autumn leaves.

Papers are from K&co and some of my personal favourites.

Flowers by Prima coloured with imagination inks.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and take a look x x x
