playtime kitten lotv

playtime kitten
hi and good evening crafters, for my 3rd post whilst still stumbling and learning my way around blogging my crafty makes i would like to share with you: playtime kitten (retired stamp) from lili of the valley (just love the cuteness of their stamps).
my colouring medium for the image on my card is distress ink, i rather like using distress ink as it gives me a softer sometimes vintage look to various images i use.
i don't know about you but when i make my cards i always have a picture in my head of what i want to achieve (i rarely pre-plan) i'm a kinda fly by the seat of my pants crafter, most times it works and sometimes they do get binned.
i hope my card inspires you to have a go at stamping and colouring (lots of colouring books available if your not into stamping) as colouring can be a very therapeutic process and should you want to learn i can recommend kit and clowder a super place to check out, just click the image on my side bar link.

Stunning! I love it when you use distress inks - you always get a really soft vintage look. I really really want to give it a go but I've no patience when I'm learning something new!!! Beautiful card. Hugs xx

give it a go, there's plenty of tutorials on you tube. check Becky Heatherington & Lynda Levoir ( if i've spelt it right)blogs. it's a small amount of ink from you distress ink pads, the right brushes and the right paper.
