Thinking of you

This time I share a distressed card that I created for the "Distressing" challenge at Lawnscaping. I love Distress Inks and there are many ways that you could use them on your card which I am very keen on trying.  Last time I used it to create a scene (on a card I mean:)) using masking and distressing. This time I have followed Jennifer McGuire to CASE one of her many wonderful creations. I love her cards and they are quite an inspiration. You can see her card here

I inked my flourish stamp with the distress inks, misted them with water using my Mini mister and then stamped the image on cardstock. The outcome was a beautiful blend and I loved the stamped image:). Since this was my first try and also because I have just a few colors to start with, I used just Fired Brick and Vintage photo on the image. I then inked the edges and distressed them with my scissors.
The butterfly has also been distressed and I love how it resists the embossing and I finished off the card with a glossy accented flower and some pearls.
This card will go into the below challenges:
Lawnscaping Challenge - Distressing
LilyPad Cards - Inspirational Challenge#4
Little Claire's Challenge - Things with wings
