Lets get inky with the Rainbow Lady

Hi there, I had loads of fun making my DT card for this weeks challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog as out theme is 'Let's get inky' and there's nothing better than some good old messy crafting lol.

The stamps are all from 'Huck Finn' a gorgeous stamp sheet from Artistic Outpost, I love these stamps!! I stamped and masked the two boys and then stamped in the ship and added some colour with distress markers and then cut out and splashed with moonshadow inks in Jolly Roger Red and Treasure Island Aqua, love the names they are perfect for these stamps. I've had these inks for years but don't use them very often, I'd forgotten how yummy and shimmery they are.
 I've layered the image up over some torn kraft glassine, some copier paper coloured with the same inks and scrunched up and some recycled brown paper. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps. To finish off I've added some brads, a bottle cap (as usual kindly donated by my son, this one reads 'Desperados' which I thought would be just the job for our two little adventurers lol) and a nautical knot.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Artistic Outpost: May Referral challenge 'Travel'
Clear it out: Use brads
Lollipop Crafts: Just for him

I hope you're having a good week, we're sooooo busy at work at the minute my feet don't seem to touch ground but hopefully I'll get to catch up on some blog hopping and bunker up in my craft room for a few hours at the weekend
Have a good day and thanks for popping by
