Tilda With Flowers

Today's card is not for an official challenge, but a little challenge I gave myself.

I love the look of distressed ink coloring, but do not have distress ink (yet - I will soon). I wanted to see what I could do with my Copics. So, here it is....

Stamps: Tilda With Flowers (Magnolia)
Paper: Basic Grey Sultry
Ink: Memento, Copics
Embellishments: Sizzix Scribbles Swirles, Primas, Brad (Basic Grey Bittersweet)

So, did the coloring effect work?


Have I mentioned I love flowers. Here is a closeup of the flower.

Have a great day!

Very pretty!! I like the distressed look too. I think it helps to tone some of the more serious edges down. Very nice job! TFS!

Fabulously adorable Julie. You did a great job coloring with your Copics. I have tried the distress inks a couple of times, but I always fall back on my Copics. The flourish is wonderful and really makes the card elegant. Wonderful work...hugs...Barb
