Sunday Stuff

When I saw the lovely sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches I couldn't resist using it. So now I'm playing along with their challenge for the first time since stepping down from their DT!

And here's my card:

I started by stamping the flower image and then borrowed Patricia's idea and masked off the three rectangles and applied distress oxide ink.

I removed the mask - big mistake -  and coloured the flowers that were within the rectangle strip. Big mistake because I only intended colouring the flowers on the green inking, but got carried away and only just stopped myself from colouring the whole image!

Stamps: Woodware, JGS490; Uniko, Simply aid Birthday
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress oxide, cracked pistachio 
Colours: Copic, Y13, Y18, BV11, BV13, BV17, RV63, RV66, RV69, N1

Huge thanks for visiting my blog today, hope you'll come back again soon.  And keep crafting!
