Bloom Where You're Planted

Well I thought it was time to do a little distressing!
I found a Phindy digi that I had never printed out and colored (shame of shames!) so I combined the two.
The "seed packet" is a downloaded google image of a vintage seed packet that I just aged a little with distress inks.
Papers are K&Co. and the clip is Tim Holtz.(love those clips. Each one has a different word on it. This clip says "Snipits".
The punch is Martha Stewart.


And a close up below:

This is b e a u t i f u l. I love vintage images and your colour scheme compliments the era.

(I saw this challenge, but I don't have any idea what this "distress" is. I am very distressed when finding these sooo difficult English words. Love you!)

I just recently found your blog and love all your cards. I watched your distress tutorial and would now like to know what paper you use when coloring with distress inks. Thanks in advance.

dolcreations said...

This is just so sweet this card! The seed packet is such a perfect idea tucked in behind your gorgeous image! You have coloured it beautifully!

Dorcas said...

I don't normally reply to my own posts but sueincanada asked me a question and I can see no other way of replying to her. :-)
So Sue! You were asking what paper I use when using distress inks. I use Georgia Pacific 110 lb weight white cardstock from walmart. Its about $5 a reem for 150 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11. Pretty good deal and I find it works just fine for distress inks, copics and pencils too.
Hope this helps! :-)
