Itty Bitty day 4 - Distress Ink Joy



Hello Friends

I went a bit crazy with my distress inks for this tag :) I love getting messy with these inks. I love purple so I decided to go with that for today's colour scheme. I used Dusty Concord for the bottom colour and Milled Lavender for the top colour. I sponged the tag and sprayed a lot of water so the colours would bleed together. I dried it with my heat gun and sprayed more water until I was happy with the background effect. I used the flower from the Feel the Joy stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder so that the white colour would pop. I created the words with an alphabet stamp set I got free with Papercraft Essentials Magazine. Finally I added some rhinestones and ribbon.
