I've used distress inks for the background and the main image (shabby shutters and tattered rose). I have to confess I love inky backgrounds but I don't use distress inks much at all so I'm entering this card into this weeks challenge from Raise the Bar which is April Fool ( a style you don't usually do). I've used stamps from Tim Holtz and Elusive images in the same inks and dusted them with green cosmic shimmer powder. The leaves and flowers on the tree are embossed with palm green EP and a pastel pink EP. The ribbon is coloured with DI and the button is from my stash, coloured with lettuce alcohol ink.
This card is for one of my closest friends who is having a difficult time at the minute so its just the thing for Crafty Ann's Challenge this week which is to make something for someone special.
There are lots of Spring challenges at the minute so I'm entering this card into the following challenges too:
Allsorts - Spring
Crafty Cardmakers - Spring into Spring
Magical Crafts - Spring/Easter
Thanks for looking
