Inspired by Summer Distress

Is the theme this week over at Simon Says Stamp'n'Show.
And here is my inky offering
 It's a mountboard tag bookmark, I used Tim's dies to cut the tag and heart centre.
 I rubbed and spritzed each summer distress colour on my craft sheet in turn, and picked up the colour and dried in-between, to get the background effect.
I then tried stamping and embossing some of the Dina Wakely tree's but my first efforts with a pink and blue embossing enamel just blended into the background, so I re heated and added white over the top, you can sort of see the coloured flecks with gives it a kinda cool effect that is alot more visible in person.
As it was looking a bit plain I coloured a little ketto image with copics, cut her out and made her the fairy tree protector.
Right I can't hang around here any longer, there's lots for me to do!
Thanks for visiting x
Stay Inky
