Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks and a white Posca Pigment ink pen.

Hi Friends and fellow Crafters,

I hope the week has been kind to you, I have been getting nice and inky, lol !!!
Today's share is a card using some of the fabulous Visible Image Stamps....
 used with some Distress inks, colours are...
Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.

I started by inking the background, blending the lightest blue from the middle, and adding the darker 2 blues as I went to the outside, gave it a sprinkle of water, then using Crackled Background and Salty Ocean ink, stamped all over,  followed with the Grunge Flourish stamp and Black Soot ink.

On a separate piece of card, I coloured the card as before, sprinkled water on it, then stamped the sentiment in Black Soot.
 To make all the black stamping pop, I highlighted the words and flourishes with a white pigment pen, then went round the edges with Treasure Gold.
I used yellow card-stock as the mat, just to contrast.
