If, like me, you are in the south of England, then today your day probably doesn't feel very sparkly. The rain we have been so short of for several weeks now seems to have decided to all come at once, and everywhere is dark and miserable. There's been a very depressed looking pigeon sitting hunched on top of Mark's bean poles for most of the morning - I wonder why it doesn't go and look for shelter?
Anyway, what better way to spend a gloomy day than getting nice and inky?
I made this card using stamps from a magazine freebie set from about 18 months ago. For the background, I smooshed distress ink pads onto a sheet of acetate - rather than a craft mat, I like to use acetate on top of a piece of the paper or card I am planning to use, to give me a better idea of where the colours are going to fall. You can see here I positioned the main pink area in the right place for the fairy. I've added Stickles for the sparkle.
