Distress Ink Card

I recently posted this card on my Docrafts gallery not really thinking it was anything extraordinary but I have had a great response and have even been asked how I made it so here goes.............

Firstly I cut out a circle with my nesties from ordinary piece of white paper and taped the negative part to the front of a square card blank.

I used a make-up sponge to apply Broken China Distress Ink through the circle onto my card blank. Remove the circle template.

I stamped my butterfly image (Morphic Bug clear stamp set from inkadinkadoo) using Ranger Black Perfect Medium.

I then added colour to my image using Peacock Green Cosmic Shimmer mist and Pearl paint from a cheap kids set, which I bought from The Works.

I hope this is explained properly, it was really simple. My experiment with the Distress Inks was just the shaped background part.
