A flurry of cards!

Well I had a flourish of inspiration the other afternoon whilst looking through Tim Holtz's new book. I have got quite a few of his products and usually make clean cut kind of cards so decided to go for abit distressed effect.
The above card is made with Basic Grey Porcelain Patterned paper, grunge board tag covered in fired brick distress ink and stamped with a Tim Holtz 'Flights of Fancy' Stamp. I stamped the flowers on to acetate with Stazon Ink and then cut out. The butterflies were stamped with antique linen distress ink and stardust stickles added. 'Birthday Wishes' stamp from Hero arts.

This is another card made with Basic Grey paper. Prima script stamp in gold as background. Flights of fancy stamped in Tattered rose distress ink. Butterflies stamped in charcoal covered in distress stickles. Paper flower made with basic grey papers inked with distress ink. I used this card as part of a challenge from My Sketch World.

I was really pleased with this card it is only the second time I have used my new promarkers. The patterned paper is Cherry Arte, not sure of the collection. I used coredinations as the background and then used a nail file to distress the scalloped edge. This stamp was a freebie on Creativity Magazine. This is the a card from the sketch challenge on My Sketch World.

Happy Crafting!

Love them all - but the middle one using the tattered rose Ranger ink has to be my favourite - absolutely gorgeously stunning!
