We're Distressed at Just Us Girls

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls

using Inks as a background.

As I write this post I haven't yet had the experience of

before this post goes live Yay!
So I am still playing (and lovin' them)
with Tim's Distress Inks for this challenge.

I did have another card in progress but time is
running out and needed to schedule this post
before heading off to spend time with family.
As a lot of you will know I love playing with backgrounds
so this challenge was such fun. I could have made so many more.
I started my base with a metallic card stock.
The background was made with
TH Distress Inks in Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon
then I got out some Pearl EX Powder  and
smeared it with a paint brush which has given it

STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies 2
Finished with some gems.

I will add this card to the following Challenges at
STAMPloratons for their
