The night Tim Holtz Inked My Work....

Yes... Your all thinking, 'what on earth is she going on about', strange Title I know, but Im on a distressing mission and the ink went all over my work... Now I'm not one to give up - especially not as the whole image was coloured and I was happy with it! So I improvised.... 

I turned the ink splurges into make believe dandelions... Now I thought that was pretty smart! But now I'm not so sure! It looks OK, you can't tell, looks like tis done on purpose and I'm sure everyone would think they were part of the design! Anyway onto the actuarial card...

This is the beautiful Springtime available from Saturated Canary, she is so beautiful, Love her hair blowing in the wind... She was coloured suing a variety of topic markers.. now cause it was late when I did her I just put my pens away.. 

Skin - E000, E00, E02, R20 for her cheeks, R81 for her lips, E59 for her Eyes
Clothes and shoes; R81, R83, B60, C3
Hair - E59, E57, E55

As I say the grass was a few different greens! If I manage to work it out I will let you know! 

I wanted to show you another sentiment stamp set I have recently purchased, its another Whimsy Stamp set that I purchased from The Hobby House called Summer Letter Seals, I love these stamps!  

Now Im trying to limit the number of pictures I up-load, I have paid for extra storage for a year but need to try and cut back, so I am trying again with the little frame with lots of photos in. 

The butterflies were punched from Kraft Card Stock using a xcut punch, I have lost my big butterfly! Slightly frustrating! I distressed the edges of their wings using TH Vintage Photo and added stickles to make them look a bit blingy! 

The flourish is the other half to the one pre made one I used on yesterdays card, I wanted to use and and thought it fitted well, that bow is made from organza ribbon, just from my stash! 

Bit of a close up of the image , I loving this hair combo at the moment! works so well, but i think tonight I will try another new one.... well I need to order some refills for the current combo! 

The flowers were from my stash, I purchased them from Crafty Emma's a while back, they are the Gardenia Petals, I so have to order some more!
