Distress Inks, Splodge Away Mat and Studio 490 Butterflies.

I had great fun making this card. The background is various colours of distress inks blended together with the help of a Splodge Away Mat.

This bit of kit is just amazing, it makes blending with inks and brayer work so much easier.
Studio 490 Butterfly and Leaf stamps, plus Dylusions Stamps.
 When my internet connection is stronger I will be putting up a distress inks blending tutorial using the Splodge Away Mat, along with a new Brayer Tutorial using the Mat instead of tons of copy paper!  Look out for these tuts in the next two weeks.

Thank you so much for popping by my blog today... new Panpastel Challenge starts tomorrow so I hope I will see you again then.
Have a great weekend

  6. Another fabulous piece of work - vibrant colours. Looking forward to the tutorials because a Splodge mat is winging its way to me and I didn't realise it could be used for brayering as well

  7. Another beautiful make Eileen.

    Right . . . if the Splodge Away Mat is endorsed by you and you reckon it'll help with brayering . . .I'm willing to part with some cash! Looking forward to tutorials.

  14. Hey Eileen, It seems that I am always commenting on your colours! Love the orange and green combo that you used. Neat honey comb texture in the background. The orange dots and white circles you added create a neat layered effect. Great work!
