I have been a very lucky girl this week, not only have I had a prize arrive at my door from a recent win but I received a free copy of the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine with one of my cards pictured in it!
Talk about exciting.
Although I am a big fan of Copics, with my prize being a gift voucher recently I decided to indulge in some more distress inks to have a go at colouring with them. After seeing so many gorgeous images coloured this way in Magnolia Ink and on many blogs I found it too tempting not to try. This card is my first go with the inks, it turned out a little darker than expected but not bad for a first go! (I have to remember a little ink goes a long way)

This is 'Wilma' from Magnolia and text stamp is from Whiff of Joy. All die cut shapes are from Spellbinders and the bow was made with the Bow Easy tool.
I am entering this card in the following challenges,
3 papers, 3 flowers, 3 ribbons
