Inspirational Card Sketch #4

At the wonderful Inspirational Card Sketches blog it's now our Third week and so time for sketch challenge #4

This is a great sketch by the fabby Dawn, and even better as I found it a little challenging!!!
I've been meaning to have a real good go at using distress inks for colouring and this is my result! I used my heat resistant matt to create a palette where I squidged the different distress ink colours onto, to then go in with my water brush, I had to mix colours to try and coordinate with this gorgeous patterned paper. I hope I've explained it (notice all my professional technical terms!!!) so that you understand! I have cut the coloured Tilda out and mounted with 3d foam!
The gorgeous chipboard flower stickers I have mounted on 3d foam and by using my embossing buddy dusted on the back to de-tack them, so they won't get damaged in the post! Then I finished off with a little glossy accents on the flowers and on the paper!

Paper: Cloud9 - Hannah's Story, MM - natural, Cartridge card,
Stamps: Tilda (It's a Christmas stamp, that's good for everything!), PTI -mixed messages,
Die's: Sizzix - Bird and flowers, Nestabilities Ovals, Cut'bg - tag,
Ink: Impress - black, distress inks - mixed, gel pen - white,
Other: Cloud9 - chipboard stickers, American crafts - ribbon, 3D foam, adhesive gems, glossy accents.
