Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass

Hi!

I'm up late tonight, as usual, not wanting to go to bed. I am such a night owl. Especially when I've worked all day, with not a whole lot of time to play! Everyone else has gone to bed and I love the quiet. Although I still hear some rumbling thunder in the distance - quite the storms went through earlier tonight, but nothing severe, thank goodness.

I know many of you have already played with the new, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Shaded Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers, and I know you love them as much as I do! So, I wanted to find out what my favorite of the three looked like with another fave of mine - Tumbled Glass. Well, after creating this card, I can tell you, I love the combination!



For the background, I used second generation stamping with the Hero Arts Lattice stamp and Tumbled Glass Ink. I mixed the same ink with water on my craft sheet, and did this again with Shaded Lilac. Then I painted the colors onto the white embossed, Hand Drawn Flower from Hero Arts. I cut out the flower and added it to the background with dimensional adhesive.

It's a really simple card but it's my favorite thing to do - just stamping, coloring and cutting! Thanks for coming by! Have a good week! :)

There is something about Turquoise that presses my buttons, I love this Palette Barb, it is warm and friendly even though Blue is generally viewed on the cool side, the Lattice Bg is so pleasing to the eye.
A beautiful card.
