The first day of summer and I got my new Summer Distress Inks – perfect timing!

I used my ink blending tool to cover the card in the three colours and loved how the Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry blended to make an amazing purple.  I went with that so the card turned out to be a deeper colour than I had originally intended.

I did my favourite spritz and flick with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist, then stamped some new Dylusions stamps, a sentiment and the birds with Archival Ink. I pressed Mowed Grass Distress on my craft sheet, misted with Biscotti, and used a paint brush to colour the leaves and sections of the circles.

I inked the wood veneer house and made it into a bird house and called it done!

I was going to stamp another sentiment but liked this one on it’s own once it was stamped. Those Around the Edge stamps are beautiful – love the numbers instead of text going through them.

I’m sure I’ll play with these inks some more tonight, try to go a little brighter – stop back tomorrow and see how it all turns out!
