Distress inks cards


I thought it was about time I had a proper play with my lush Lavinia stamps and my distress inks, these are some cards I made for some birthdays over at MSE. Still not quite got used to the brayer properly but I am fairly happy with how these turned out, although the blue card I didn't use quite thick enough paper so I have learnt from that. They are a lot more sparkly in real life which I was obviously happy about.
I really need some more inks as I don't have many more colours than I have used, I did ask 'Santa' for some for Christmas but all he said was don't you have enough cr*p already... I don't think he understands my crafting needs!!

  4. Forgot to say, your Santa sounds a bit of a grump, he obviously doesn't understand a girl's needs!
