Colour Q 145

Hi, here today with a card I made for Colour Q 145 Challenge.  Look at this beautiful inpiration photo

I love this floral Washi tape.  I had heaps of ideas running through my head as to what I was going to do for this challenge as I am participating in the Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps class and am suffering from inspiration overload.  This is what I ended up making, which is a total 180 from some of my original ideas, lol!

I'm pleased with the way it's turned out as it's quite different from my normal style. I've used Distress Inks for all the stamping, using techniques I learnt from Tim Holt's Creative Chemistry 101 class.

Well, I must be off - had a massive unplanned sleep in this morning and have wasted 1/2 the day already.

Thanks for visiting.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Nature's Moments (Tim Holtz - Stampers Anonymous)
Ink:  Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Walnut Stain, Embossing Distress Inks (Tim Holtz - Ranger)
Cardstock:  Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!), Watercolour Paper (LSS)
Accessories:  Craft Mat (Ranger), Mister, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, White EP, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit
