Bright Inks

Made this card to cheer up the gloomy weather! The main background is made using a spritzer filled with water, Tim Holtz Distress Re-inker drops and some Perfect Pearls mixed in. I spritzed the card a few times and dried inbetween. The image is a Stampendous flower spritzed with the same mixture as before. I triple embossed the image with clear EP then bent it to leave cracks. The swirly background is made using my trusty Cuttlebug rubbed over with Tim's Distress Ink Pad in Marmalade. I don't think this card has photographed very well sadly.

Love the card I can see I am going to have to find my spritzer bottle and have a go at this.
Thanks for sharing :)

Cool card, I have the distress inks and have never played with them, it's about time that I did.

Beautiful colours and card. I will have to find my spritzer bottle and have a go. Wouldn't have thought to add perfect pearls to the mix so thanks for the idea.

Really great card - I must try inking my embossing folders - did you use a brayer or just the inkpad?

Hi Debbie
Thanks for your lovely comment. I just wiped the ink pad over the raised areas then spritzed with water. Deb x
