Getting Inky

 Morning all.  we have a fun new challenge this morning over at Cardz4galz. Shell would like us all to 'Get Inky' on your projects.  This is a bit out of my comfort zone as I don't like to get my hands dirty.  I do, however, like to stencil. Before I started with that I used some distress inks and water to paint a subtle background.  I then used the same colours and a stencil from Funky Fossil.

I finished it off with a butterfly stamp by Laurel Burch.  I added a greeting ans some gems and that was it. I very rarely create my own backgrounds so it would be good to see your inky ideas.  Please pop over and join in.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
