This Card was inspired by this wonderful post (http://stampinginspiredby.blogspot.co.uk/2010/03/another-little-tutorial.html), I have used both the techniques before but the colours where amazing so i had to have a go!
The larger mat is made by using Distress ink and then splatting water onto it (one of my Favorite techniques!) and the smaller mat uses white card and embossing powder that resists the Distress ink! So much fun as i love getting inky!
Here are some close-ups
Went a bit multi coloured on the background here but if you have the distress ink i always feel the need to use it!
The tag here uses Kaisercraft stamps. The Butterflies on the front of the card are also KasierCraft.
I am going to submit this card to Split Coast stampers for their new mixed media challenge (it was shiny and matt this time!)
See you all soon
