Sunny Days

Its time again for the Less is more challenge and this week Mandi and Chrissie want one layer cards and would like us to "use ink" hopefully in a way you haven't tried before or a favourite technique. Well I went for first option, yes I have used distress inks before but not like this, I've either coloured images using them or distressed edges of papers, never used like this. I stamped this image from the summer by the sea set from Stampin up, masked the image of the boy only using a post it note, and then went to town with mustard seed and broken china distress inks. It only took me 2 attempts to get it right on the card but hundreds of attempts on scrap card before I dared to try it on an actual card. Once I had used the inks I then coloured the image with promarkers and added a sentiment from Woodware.

Thank you for the challenge Mandi and Chrissie and thanks for looking
