Gimme Ten!

Yesterday I did a little experimenting with my new Tim Holtz Distress markers and came up with this card for the Flourishes sneak peek week challenge.  The challenge was to create a card in 10 minutes... and let me tell ya, this was a hard one for me!  But in the end I had a game plan in my head and I think I made my card literally in 10 minutes.

Blooms & Butterflies

Steps to making this card...
  1. Stamp images with Memento ink on watercolour paper.
  2. Colour images with water based inks.
  3. Spray with water and let inks blend and bleed.
  4. Emboss card edge with Scorbug.
  5. Wrap ribbon around card front and secure with a brad.
  6. Adhere front panel.
