Get inky and messy at FSC

Hi there, sorry I'm awol at the minute, my hubby is still very poorly in hospital and I've also got computer gremlins. Fingers crossed things will soon settle down but in the mean time here's a very quick post with my DT card for Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Our theme this time around is 'Get Inky and Messy' chosen by our very own top model Shirley :-)

I've used distress inks on glossy card to create this card. The background was made with the spring distress inks with the addition of some tumbled glass and shabby shutters. I've used stamps from Stampers Anonymous 'Papillion' and coloured the main image with distress markers. The flowers were made from Crinoline Fabric coloured with distress inks and stamped with text using black archival ink. You can see them a bit better here


I've added some black buttons, die cut foliage and some more little butterflies 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Classy cards and such: Handmade flowers
The Stamp Man: Anything goes summer colours
Totally Papercrafts: Lots of layers

Thanks for popping by. I hope you are keeping out of all this rain, it never seems to let up does it?
