So this weeks Topical Tuesday over at AnnaBelle Stamps new Stamp Embellish Create social site is playing with Distress Inks and I thought I would give it a try to create my background. Andrea has made an awesome video showing the techniques!
This card is a combination of inspiration, I just adored Kim’s SPARKS challenge at Paper Smooches, combined it with CAS-ual Fridays ‘Love Ya to Pieces’ and Simon Says Stamp where ‘Love is in the Air’! Seems to be a theme amongst the challenges this week….. wonder what it is?

It was very complicated Lisa… I drew it with a pencil first.
