Joyful

Joyful describes me mucking around and playing with my Distress inks again.  That is how I created this background for the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast today.  I applied my Distress ink pad directly to my non-stick pad and sprayed with water.  I ran my paper through the wet ink to make the bkg.  When it was dry, I stamped over it with a bkg. stamp.  I stamped the Bed of Roses background stamp in black Memento ink and cut out the roses.  I left them white to highlight them against the yellow, orange and greens.
Love my new sentiments from Paper Smooches too.  
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  Stamps; Penny Black, Paper Smooches, Wplus9/ Distress inks/ pop dots

I love the black and white roses over your color...what a stunning effect! The balance of your white space in the corner opposite your color and roses is perfect. Your subtle twine is a sweet addition. Such a lovely design and beautiful card!
