Distress Inks and Designs By Ryn 'Sea Bubbles' Stamps

Morning all. Some parts of the UK are having the most terrible weather. We are so lucky here, in the South-east, above freezing with just rain at the moment.
My thoughts go especially to all those who have to work in these awful conditions, also the farm animals and wildlife that are having to cope with the snow. I'll be filling up my bird feeders. Please put out some food for them if you can. X

This card is another using the brilliant stamps from Designs By Ryn.
Ryn is a very talented young designer and many of us (thousands I bet!) have bought her famous Water Droplet Stamp!
White Linen card stock from the Papermill Direct, Faded Jeans, Mustard Seed ( just a touch) and Mowed Lawn Distress inks.
The 'Sea Bubbles' image was stamped using Onyx Black Versafine ink and the Sizzix Butterflies were coloured with various colours of distress inks, plus a few dabs with a white Uni-Posca pen.   
It's a quick and easy card, why not have a go at this one!

Many thanks for the comments and support for my blog and also the overwhelming interest in my Workshops ... they are almost fully booked until the Autumn! I'm looking forward to meeting and making new crafty friendsIt's the Allhallows Crop today so I'm out to play. Stay warm, have a good weekend.
Happy crafting

  2. Stunning!!1 Love this card. So neat and clean and fresh looking. Have bought some of Ryn's stamps as I love them!!!!! but still trying to find time to play with them!!!!!!Love the colours you have used here and that some of the card is left white, makes for a refreshing change rather than all coloured,,,,just a personal view.Gorgeous butterflies too. Have a good time at Allhallows today

  6. Hi Eileen, this is so neat. What order do you do the colouring and scoring on the centre panel to get such perfection? Wish I lived close enough to get along to one of your classes.
    Thanks, Angela

    1. Hi Angela.. I scored the lines first, then used masking tape to mask off the area that I wanted to ink... plonked on the ink, stamped and carefully ... removed the tape hoping the ink had stayed within the lines... this time it did!

  14. Hey Eileen, you sure have been busy! lol, I feel like it's Christmas! Thank you so much :) I love how you often use a part of the stamp instead of the whole thing. Such wonderful comments.
