Splish, Splash, Splosh......


Today I have a Magnolia dt card I made using the Lazy Summer Days collection. I have coloured my image with distress inks. The frame was made by embossing a nestie shape onto my card. I have masked Tilda onto her bathing ring the background is distressed with milled lavender.

I was also asked if I could list the colours of inks I use when colouring my image. So here goes I hope you will find this useful.

skin - antique linen and tattered rose
bathing suit - milled lavender and black soot
water - weathered wood and black soot
hair - old paper, brushed corduroy and black soot
ring - shabby shutters and black soot

Thank you so much for looking!

Kim, your cards are just stunning. I love the soft colouring you've achieved with the Distress Inks - the effect is so delicate and the skin looks so realistic (which I always find difficult to do). Thank you so much for sharing the colour list too.
