All That We Behold




Greetings Fellow Followers!  I truly appreciate you stopping by today.  At Inkspirational we are up to Challenge # 18 and this week we have the Color Inkspiration below of Grape, Olive and Peach.
For my own card, I worked with Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Wild Honey Distress Inks.  I began by smooshing Distress Paints onto a Craft Mat, spraying with water and pressing card stock onto my mat.  I then stamped images from the Generation Redux plate by Artistic Outpost with Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the prepared surface.  The focal image, also from Generation Redux, was stamped with Distress Paint onto white card stock and distressed around the edges with Wild Honey DI and mounted to the card front over a paper doily that was distressed with Victorian Velvet DI.  The sentiment is from the Flower Market plate, also by AO. A bit of dyed lace, burlap string, a charm and a button complete my creation.  Now it's your turn to link up a creation of your own for a chance at a prize sponsored this month by Tammy of Creatively Me. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Yvonne
