Bee Happy !!

Hi Everyone......................Just a quick post tonight as I am running around like a headless chicken....again !!  ( Hence the post title !!....nothing to do with the card below x)

This was a quick card I made for a friend's birthday. Various brown Distress Inks were blended on the main card then flicked with water/dried with a heat gun as per Tim Holtz technique. I then stamped the car from WV Studio 490's European Art in sepia Archival ink, colouring with a water colour  dipped in Distress inks.

I used the same blend and flick technique on the torn paper on bottom of card, overstamping with a large rubber stamp from Hero Arts. The letters were cut using Tim Holtz Sizzix Die and blended with Spiced Marmalade and Broken China Distress Inks.

I hope to catch up with you all over the weekend and look forward to viewing your creations.

Take care and 'Thank You' for dropping in, it means so much.
