Hi Everyone,

I've been playing around with some Tim Holtz Distress inks creating backgrounds with different colors. My cards today have backgrounds created with Distress inks and acetate. You can get some really pretty backgrounds with this technique.

Once the backgrounds dried I stamped the new Praying for Friends greeting with Versafine Black Onyx ink in the corner. The butterfly was stamped with the same black ink. I added some Nuvo clear Crystal drops to the butterfly body. It doesn't show up in the photo, but does in real life. Some gold rhinestones were added to the corners to complete the look.

The second card  features the new Sincere Thanks greeting which was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink. The Silhouette branch was also stamped with the same black ink. Black half pearls were added to the corner.

Remember the Great Cling Stamp Give Away is still happening. Click here for details.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Shelia, these cards are so sweet! Soft bg coloring and peaceful sentiments and images give such a comforting feel to both cards. Lovely way to showcase the awesome new sentiments. Great cards! Hugz
