Getting Inky on a Rainy Day

It rained pretty much all day yesterday, so I decided to get another one of my new stamp sets inky :-) I'm not 100% sure I like this card, hopefully I'll get a chance to play with these stamps again.

I stamped the watercolor background by simply inking a small acrylic stamp block with distress inks and spritzed with water. The random dots were made by flicking watercolor brush with the same paint made from distress ink. 

Product List:
Distress inks, versafine onyx ink
mixed media and SU card stock
washi tape, vellum striped paper
button, twine

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. The sun is out today and we're having a beautiful blue sky. Hopefully it'll warm up a bit more too in the next few days :-)
