Garden Goodness


As you know, I love playing with my Distress inks and getting inky.  This card is another one using the Embossing Folder inking technique.  I LOVE it!  You can watch the video posted with yesterday's card.
I began by inking up my hexagon folder from Stampin Up with Distress inks in these colours:  Peeled Paint, Shaded Liliac, Dusty Concord and Spun Sugar.  When you add water, the colours blend together so well.  When it was all dry, I stamped the flowers from Unity and added the sentiment.  

Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- KEEP it CAS 




CASology- #92 GARDEN




Thanks so much for stopping in...very appreciated!

Supplies:  stamps- Unity, Mama Elephant/ Distress ink/ EB folder-SU/ Memento black ink/ bl pearls

This is so beautiful I hate to call it grunge. It's really more "art". Thanks for sharing the idea. I watched the video and will definitely be doing this technique.
