Let's Ink It Up DT Call

Well, this is one I couldn't resist as anyone that knows me knows that I'm never happier than when I'm all covered in ink!  I get some very strange looks sometimes when I'm shopping due to the technicolour fingers! When I saw that Let's Ink It Up Challenge Blog are having a DT call, I felt that I should give it a go.
To take part I have to choose 3 favourite projects and I found this bit really hard as all my projects are a bit like my babies as they've been nurtured to their finished state so I do feel something for them all! In the end I picked a vintage style card, a fun set of skinnies and an elegant card using one of my favourite background techniques. Hope you like them!

A vintage style collage card. The background paper is made by sponging glossy card with several shades of Distress Ink and was then stamped. The vintage lady and car were stamped, coloured with Promarkers and cut out. The film strip was stamped and acetate applied to the trimmed panel to show the map underneath. The flower was hand made with stamped paper.

These fun skinnies were made by brayering the background card with Kaleidacolor rainbow inks, stamping on script and then adding hand done doodling (I really love to doodle!). The fun cats were stamped and coloured with various shades of Promarkers - I was really pleased with the results as I wanted them to look as realistic as possible and hope I succeeded.

This card uses my Distress Ink Grunge Background Technique (tutorial link on my sidebar if you're interested). The metal flower was punched, embossed to give it shape and altered with StazOn inks to enhance the colour. I was very pleased with the elegant look of this card.

Thank you for taking the time to look ladies and I hope you like my contribution.
