A Splash of Colour!

Is the theme this time round @ the PlayDateCafe
You have to use Black and White and a splash of 'BLUE'
I decided on a Timmy tag as i just cant get enough of how they feel and how well they work with my distress inks... i need this tag cardstock in A4 i tell ya.
I stamped a harlequin background in black soot, then misted with water, let it bleed slightly and then removed the excess water with a bit of kitchen towel.
I stamped out 2 clocks, and a butterfly onto sticky canvas, i left the clocks blank and cut them out, but coloured the butterfly with chipped saphire and tumbled glass and stuck this to some metal and then cut out.
{I did this to be able to give the butterfly dimention and shape}
I pieced it all together and finished it with a stamped quote sticking out of a punched mini envelope.
I really like how the distress inks bleeds..Off now to try it with some other colours TTFN x
All the supplies I used are available from The Artistic Stamper.
Have a great weekend x
