Distress!

Hi everyone, Happy Monday! I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! I was suppose to pack for our move to San Francisco in the end of June today, but I made a card instead... will get back to packing tomorrow! :) Do you love Tim Holtz's Distress Inks? I just love them... so yummy!! You can do so much with them! You can dye your ribbons with the ink refills, color with them, and distress your paper... the possibilities are endless!!

Today, I'm taking a break from my Copic markers and colored my image with the Distress Inks instead. I love all the colors, but my favorite is Victorian Velvet... totally yummy!! What's your favorite color? I hope you enjoy my card. Have a beautiful day!



Supplies: Goujuss flower girl stamp, Memory Box pp, Hero Arts stamp, pearls, Prima flowers, large pearls, Stampin'Up card stock

Thank you for stopping by!
