LIM Challenge - Week 28 - one layer - Inks Card No 2



I've been playing again, such fun and very inky fingers. They are covered in "RED" ink and I haven't even used any red?? I made a card mask with a diecut - cut out four squares. Each square I masked out again and coloured in with a different ink. Tim Holtz for the top two Crushed Olive and Pumice Stone. The third one is an orange from a different set. I lightly spritz some water on a pad of tissue and wiped off the excess ink to make it lighter. The sunflower stamp (haven't got a clue where that came from - I seem to have a few different stamps) I stamped with a black versamark pad and then watered down some more inks and coloured in with a fine paintbrush. As I don't usually stamp I must admit I suprised myself with the results.

Got to go and feed my English neighbours cat Boris. His owner is in UK for a few days.
