Here is my take on the challenge.....

I have been in a craft drought lately and I am starting to get the shakes as I haven't even been in my craft room for over a month!!!
I plan to rectify that this weekend...

To kick start my creative juices for this month's Inspiration Challenge, I combined my two current loves....... Hero Arts and Distress Inks!

I just love this HA background stamp, which I embossed on to watercolour paper with white powder.
With Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, Perfect Pearls spray and my acrylic blog I painted each little space.  I love how some are darker than others too.
I really love this technique!
I couldn't resist using my new washi tape either lol!

Join in the challenge so I can get some inspiration from your lovely blogs..!!!

Thanks for popping by
Next on the hop 
is Linda's  fabulous Blog

Enjoy xxx :)
