Dyed Fingers!

All that disressing had coloured my fingers a pretty vintage photo colour!!! Even when you are careful you still seem to get it all over the place!! This card is entering into 6 challenges. It started off as 1 and just expanded.
Magical Crafts - Vintage
ABC - L for Layers
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Girly
Just Magnolia - Paper Pleating
Cute Card Thursday - Something New (Promarkers)
The Pink Elephant - Birthdays.
Links to these Challenges are on my sidebar.

I have aged the papers with Tim Hopltz Distressing Ink and Adirondack ink too. Then I sprayed water on it to make it look old. Now I see it though I am not too sure. What do you think??
The flowerrs were aged using the same tequnique then when I sprayed them I used Perfect Pearls in the water to give them a shine. I coloured Tilda in with my fabby Promarkers. I am still just getting the hang of them but like what I managed to do.

  • 6 x6 Card
  • Papers, flowers and Pearls from stash
  • Tilda Image from RAK (Coloured with Promarkers and Sakura Pen)
  • SU Stamped Sentiment
  • Tim Holtz Vintage Distressing Ink, Raisin Adirondack Ink, Perfect Pearls.

Well off now to get on with Monday. I can't believ it came round so quickly. Hope you are all ok and not too bothered by the snow. Ours has all gone!

Take Care Hazelxo

I love it Hazel, very girly and definitely has the vintage look. Like the idea of squirting water at it and the effect is really good. Love your pleating too.

I love the distressed vintage look. Those flowers look fab. Sounds messy though, I'm bad enough with stamp pads and glitter. Marianne x
