I just love messing around with Distress Inks! I wanted some solid-image bunting so I performed some delicate surgery on one of the stamps in the Paper Smooches Tri-balation set. See that solid three-triangle image top left? I sliced it up with a craft knife so that I could turn it into a banner, and I also used the striped banner image from the set, coaxing it into a bit of a curve.
Then I splodged some Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick and Salty Ocean onto an acrylic block, stamped my re-arranged triangles into the colours, spritzed and stamped onto the card panel, joining the images with a yellow marker pen. I love the looseness and movement. I stamped the striped banner and dragged some of the colour through with a wet paintbrush.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:-
Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge
Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge
A new one for me, Cure For The Monday Blues, which is already up to Challenge #13!
Time Out Challenge, where it's a birthday card, with the optional twist of a masculine card. Well, men's cards don't have to be dull colours, do they?
ETA: Forgot to add it to Make The Day Special Challenge - Anything Goes
