Vase bouquet and distress inks.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am a little behind in visiting you all as I sorted out my pantry yesterday, I want to know how I managed to fill 6 binbags full of tat out of such a small space, oh and an old hoover or two.Its lovely and tidy now, just the spare room, jacks bedroom and the shed to go and it looks like we will have plenty of time as its given rain out
So here is my card for today and I decided to colour with distress inks for a change, I have lots of ink pads but don`t use them often and I really fancied just sitting and painting.
Don`t look too close though, I did try and paint it to look a bit aged and shabby, honest :D
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
1.ABC Challenge - R is for Roses - Flowers/and or red.
2.Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge - R133 - Inky Fingers (I have used inks to paint my image)
3.Brown Sugar Challenge - Challenge 51 - Anything Goes
4.Crafting When We Can Challenge - Challenge 49 - Floral
 
Products used are:
Linen card
Mix of Prima and Docrafts papers
Doily
Pearls
Lace
Kaisercraft sentiment
Stampendous cling stamp - vase bouquet
Distress tool
Distress inks

Distress inks used are:
Fired brick, aged mahogany, black soot
Crushed olive, forest moss
Wild honey, spiced marmalade, rusty hinge
Tumbled glass, broken china

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, means  a lot ;D
Hugs Nic.xx

I think it looks beautiful, Nic. It's got a lovely soft watercolour feel to it and the neutral background really makes those red flowers pop! Well done on clearing out the pantry; I'm trying to bribe the Boy Wonder to help me do mine! Hugs, Tracey x

Hi Nic

Gorgeous card love the vase of flowers and such striking colours

Don't ask me how so much gets in the cupboards, I have mine to do and a spare bedroom that at the moment no one even sleep on the bed at the moment for everything that's on it.
Keep cool

Nic, this is such a pleasure to view! Lovely coloring, painting, shading - whatever you did is fabulous. Gorgeous card with sweet details but not too bulky - my favorite kind. This will make someone feel much better and very special - the best kind of card. You are so inspiring me with your tales of de-cluttering and cleaning - I ALMOST feel like having a go of it myself. Keep sharing and I may take the plunge. Hugz!
