Trend Week over at Just Us Girls

This week over at Jugs
is their Trend Challenge and it is
Water Colouring. Challenge #258

I love to play around with my stamps and inks and this
suited me nicely.
I must admit by the time I had finished I was well and truly INKED.

Now where do I start - First off clean hands lol
That didn't last long.

 I started with the basic white card base and then the fun began
as I worked on what I wanted to feature.
I inked an acrylic block with different distress inks
and stamped onto watercolour paper. Let it dry and then
embossed a small part in white with a small stamp
My main focal image is a retired stamp from Stampin' Up
called Inspired by Nature. I embossed the floral image with
Stampendous Aged Rose Embossing Enamel.
 Love this product as you get the embossing powder
and enamel together and brings
out a fabulous effect. I also used the leaf stamp on the bottom.
After I had done that I again stamped randomly a few more
areas with the wire type stamp in a dark ink.
I framed my image and added ribbon a touch of lace
 and button to finish it off.

Since I had inks on my desk I decided to make another card
but more cas. I will post that a little later.

Hope you like what you see and come back soon.
