My little collection of inky backgrounds was still on my desk so before tidying them away I selected one to use for a card and would you believe I actually had to cut into a whole new sheet of toning card for the die cuts - this of course has resulted in more snippets for the oddments boxes!! I had thought that the dies would fit nicely onto a 5 x 7 card but they are just too wide so I juggled them a bit to fit my favoured 6" square card blank instead. The inky background was a bit pale in places so I added a touch of darker ink so that there was more contrast between the layers and I managed to find a fairly large scrap of a darker tone to frame everything. The flowers were cut from the left overs of the background and they have a dot of Stickles in the centres. The card looks a lot brighter on my screen but in fact it is more subtle in real life.
The weather has been fine and sunny (also quite warm too) for a couple of days despite the forecast saying that we were in for rain and thunder storms all over the Bank Holiday - I hope you've all been lucky with the weather too and enjoyed the break.
Die - With Love Die Set from Tonic - a good 5" wide
Card Used - sheet of Pool Party from Stampin' Up
Inky Background - mix of Pixie Powders and Distress Oxide inks (I think)
