Here is another card that I really enjoyed making! I am so into all of the painty/inky stuff!
The background is coloured with a layer of the amazing Distress Paints - Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Weathered Wood. I put lines of them on my craft sheet, spritzed it with water. Spritzed the card too then dragged it through the paint. When partially dried, I sprayed with more water then dried completely. I then used Crafters Workshop Template Mini Tile Texture and inked through with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. The diamonds are randomly stamped with Picked Raspberry DI and are a clear Harlequin stamp by Tim Holtz. The swirls and background flowers are also Tim Holtz stamps and are stamped in Archival Black. The sentiment is from Through The Rain by Sheena Douglass and the butterflies are IndigoBlu. The large flower is made using Tattered Florals Die by Tim Holtz coloured with Dusty Concord DI and the same ink is edging the background too. The leaves are a Spellbinders die inked with a green DI, I can't remember off hand which one, sorry! The purple pearls are from my stash and the base card is also purple. The centre of the flower is a metal button. I picked a set up for a £1 from a vintage fair. Bargain!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
