colouring with distress inks

Hello Stampers!

This is my very first image coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks!  I'm pretty happy that I've finally given it a try - although I certainly need some more practice!  

This is one of my favourite Magnolias, Tilda with Hawaii Flower, who was actually quite hard to find.  I think that Magnolias always look so pretty coloured in distress inks, but I could never get it quite right.

I've used SU! Watercolor Paper and a Zig water brush to finally get a somewhat decent effect.  I made this for my friend Julie's birthday last week.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid, and the gorgeous little chiffon badge I found on Etsy (LOVE Etsy for cute little elements).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
The Official Magnolia Challenge (3 patterned papers, 2 (or more) different types of embellishments, 1 image)



  1. Gorgeous Sarah. Julie will love it!

  2. Absolutely breathtakingly! Beautiful card. Great colour and I love the image.

  3. Very cute! Your friend will love it!
