I've used Distress Inks to colour my card after seeing this done on the Ranger website.. I just knew I wanted a go! .. I had a little 'blooper' which I may share with you on my blog tomorrow!!

Next, I made tag using some Fab-U-LouS new stamps from Maria Sabina Raita.



I used the same Distress Inks as before..

  31. Gorgeous!! I love the blending of the colors. I can't find a blooper anywhere...did you hide it under a sentiment? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Really love this technique with the white space and using the distress inks. Makes an eye popping card. The tag is wonderful, love that sentiment. Can't wait to see the blooper tomorrow, lol. Don't we all have them????

    ReplyDelete
  33. Both projects are fabulous. If there's a blooper, it's well hidden.

    Great colors and a total success with a new-to-you technique!

    If I have to choose a favorite, I'll go with the bunny and balloon tag! Genius to color the balloon so vividly and the bunny so subtly.
