You colour my world

I've been playing with my Distress markers again! So much fun!

I would like to share at Inkspirational - here is the photo prompt:

While my "smooshing" mimics the reflective surface, I didn't go too literal. I went with what happens after what we see in the photo. :) 

I would also like to share at Shopping Our Stash - they are looking for cards meant for men or young men. While these are not decidedly masculine, they are at minimum neutral - what do you think? While working on building the stash, I had created a few in a similar fashion (the background part at least) with distress markers, but had been using pastel colours. This time around, I was trying for something that would be more suitable for male recipients. They certainly were fun to play around with.

Thanks for visiting!

What I used:
Tim Holtz Distress Markers - faded jeans, dusty concord, barn door, spiced marmalade, mustard seed
CTMH D1348 Priceless Love Word Puzzle (You colour my world)
My Creative Time - congrats to you
tiny star stamp CTMH "Hello, Life - cardmaking"

  5. These cards are fabulous! Love how the water colouring technique turned out in the backgrounds.
