Oranges & Lemons

Good morning, Kirsten here, happy March 1st.  I’ve actually written this post on Thursday night & scheduled it to appear this morning, because I knew I wouldn’t have time to write it on Friday.  The new challenge is up on the challenge page & I made a card to illustrate it.

If you’re thinking that it looks like it was thrown together, you’re right.  I made it in about fifteen minutes on Thursday night, because I couldn't come up with any other ideas.  And of course, it was dark, so the photos are rubbish.

Very simply, it’s Spiced Marmalade & Scattered Straw distress inks on white cardstock, with water flicked on top & dried.  I stamped the Kanban collage stamp  & the corner flourish stamp with coffee Archival ink & added the Craftwork Cards sentiment.  The butterflies were coloured with the same DIs, used as paint.  To finish I spritzed everything with a mix of a pale gold mica powder & water.  You might be able to see the slight shimmer in the bottom pic.

Ok, I have to go.  Thanks to everyone for the gorgeous entries into the February challenge.  I’ll use to draw the winner, then post the result over the weekend.  Have a lovely Friday.
