Daisies and Distress Inks


I had so much fun making the first card, that I ended up making a set of four!  
Inks include a variety of bright colours in the Ranger Distress range including 
Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters, 
Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Evergreen Bough, and Peacock Feathers.  



I sponged some of the ink on the corners of the  thick water color card bases, 
then added the flowers using an Imagination Crafts stencil.  
Other stencils were used to create a random background pattern.
The sentiments are four encouraging Bible verses from 
the fabulous set Good Work by Verve.
I added some ivory sequins and random dots of glitter (Stickles) 
though none of the sparkle shows up in my photo's, just some little spots!
I sure don't have the skills to be able to pick up sparkle in my photography, 
which is a shame because I've really been enjoying 
the eye-catching quality it adds in real life.
Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope it's a good one for you!

Do you know if you can get Sweet'n Sassy in the UK? I really like their 'Perfect Faith ' and 'God is good' stamp sets to use in my bible journalling, and can't find them anywhere except their American site.

Hi Kate, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps does not have a distributor in the UK, but they do ship internationally from the US website, it's based on the weight of the package and you can find out what that is before committing to buy by contacting Korin there. They do have lovely Bible journaling stamps!
