Live Out Loud

Happy Friday! 

Today was my turn to share a creation on the Just For Fun Rubberstamps blog, and I decided to use my dylusions inks. It's been too long since I last used them, and had lots of fun getting inky :-)

All stamps are by Just For fun, I also used a dotted stencil. Besides dylusions inks I also used distress inks, as the green that I have was too bright (like on the top portion of the card), so I inked the edges a little bit with an earthier shade of green (peeled paint).

Product list:
dylusions inks, distress inks, archival ink
mixed media card stock,, 110lb card stock 
prima flower and brad

I would love to play along in a few challenges:
Mixed Media Card challenge - vintage
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes
Baffies Kreativladen -  Fall & Halloween
Crafter's Cafe - F Black, Orange + 1 colour (I chose green)
