Bands of Colour

Good Sunday Morning....had a chance to make a card today.  The sun is shining and I feel motivated for a change...lol.  I wanted to play along with the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays; So Torn.  I wanted to keep my card clean and easy to mail so I got out my Distress inks...love em....tore up a piece of paper and used that to mask as I sponged the colours on to create the background.  I added the flowers and sentiment then sprinkled water over for a great interesting effect.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Purple Onion, The Cat's Pajamas/ Distress inks/ pop dots/ twine

    Please may I be cheeky and ask what colours you used on the bands?
    Have one or two distress inks but nothing like these!
