Yesterday I spent some time using Distress Oxide inks to colour up a couple of pieces of watercolour paper, then couldn't decide what to do with them so they were left on my desk and I sat down and did some crochet instead. Today I decided I really must get motivated to see what they could be used for and I settled on die cutting some flowers and foliage. Luckily I'd coloured a piece using greens and the other in various pinks, mauve and yellow. The butterfly background was a piece from a quite old pad from Sizzix (Tim Holtz) and I added a strip of die cut lace and a Birthday greeting before arranging the leaves and flowers, tying a bow in some jute string to finish it off. I still have some of the inky pieces left so they will probably appear on another card or two before too long.
Quite a dull start to the day today but now the sky is blue and the sun is shining again.
