Playing with Distress Inks....

This fun sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch was my inspiration and starting point for my card. 

The team have created some beautiful cards this week, so I would encourage you to give it a try.

I used an ATC size watercolor card and distress inks in peeled paint, faded jeans and broken china for my background. Stampin' Up's stamp set "Just Believe" has been one of my very favorites with it's lovely sentiments and silhouette images.
The butterfly was cut with a Sizzix die out of more watercolor paper, distressed with the same inks and then stamped with a Hero Arts script stamp.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned, thanks for stopping by to visit!
