Playing with some of my new toys

On my recent downline roadtrip, we made a card using distress inks. I got a few and also a couple of stamps. I couldn't resist playing a little bit tonight. I have tons of stuff I should be doing, but sometimes you just have to play, especially when you've had a couple of weeks like I have had. It was a great stress reliever and I really think that I'll be more productive because of it.

The cattail stamp is one of the stamps I got at Rocky Mountain Memories. I've had the sentiment for a while and just hadn't inked it up yet. The button is from my stash. I cut the brown layer with my deckle scissors and used the Black Soot distress pad on it. I used Pine Needles on the green card base and Antique Linen on the image panel. Card stock is Garden Green, Naturals Ivory and Soft Suede. I have really fallen in love with the Soft Suede cardstock and it is the only color I didn't think I'd like in the new in-color bundle.

Can't wait to get back to crafting on a regular basis - - soon, very soon I hope!

Thanks so much for visiting!

This is so great. I love the cattail image and the colors you have here. I just finished watching the Thinking Inking video series by Jennifer Maguire and I am sort of tempted to buy the whole line of distress inks and create all the great looks that the ink allows for.
You card is super!
