Inky Fingers.

Hi.  Well I can't believe the week has gone by... Time is going so fast this year.  I've been busy at work.  I've been put into a new team so have to get my work on hand finished... plus a couple of commissions to do, a couple of DT cards to make.    So today I've got a card to share from last week.

I took a photo of my fingers after making my card







The background started as white card with embossing paste and a stencil.  I've had it sitting on my desk for quite some time so decided that I need to do something with it.  I had some ink on my craft sheet so the piece got smooshed through it,( you can just see the blues that were there) then added the Festive Berries distress ink.   Next was a bit of gold Shimmer Spritz and a tiny bit of Fireworks spray in a purple.  The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter.

Here's a close up of the shimmery shine on the card.

I am entering this into the Mixed Media Challenge (here) for August.  - to use a stencil and paste.

Edited:  Entered also into the stencil challenge at AAA Cards - hope it's CAS enough!

Hoping to get some time this weekend to have a play.  There are just so many inspiring blogs out there to visit and get lots of ideas from.  Still got some new goodies to play with.
