A quick share

Hi There! I'm still being a bit of a bad blogger, not getting round to visiting much. I promise it will change soon. I am having a bit of a craft room sort out, although it it still at that point where it looks worse before it gets better!
In the meantime I have a card to share with you. It was on the possible discard pile for a while there, but in the end I decided it was okay after all!
I used linen look card stock and just wet my blue, green, yellow and brown ink dusters to get the effect! you have to be careful not to damage the surface of the card with this technique, but if you get it right it is very effective. The stamp set is All about Allium, stamped in black versafine, with highlights in white gel pen.
Thanks for looking!

A beautiful card Sally, it has a feel of the setting sun about it. I love the look you've got with the wet dusters, I've not tried that before.

Very effective - sometimes if I sleep on it It's fine. This is very OK & definitely not a discard. Love your whitework.

Glad you didn't discard this Sally, it's lovely (I bought those stamps at Donny ;D). I would never have thought of wetting my inkdusters so thanks for the tip.
