From Me to You  | Card making  with Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks

Hi everyone, Beck Beattie here today sharing a card I created teaming up some yummy Bella! products with my Tim Holtz Distress Mini ink pads.  I just love how the combination of the inks with the Bella! products really helped to take my card to the next level.

Products Used:
Bella! Raw and Rustic Paperz - Table Toppers
Bella!  True Romantic Paperz - Jot
Ruby Rock-it Faded Empire Floral Pack
Fundamentals Embellishments - Sentiments

Other Products used:
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Twisted Citron

I'd like to take you through what I did on my card.  So here goes!

I started out by adding some pink colour to the edges of my base pattern paper for my card.  This really helps finish the card as it makes the paper look as though it was created just for the size of the card.  The softened edges with the same colour as the dots really helps to frame the overall look of the card. 

I wanted to take the same colour through to the foreground and contrast this against the flowers that are underneath this beautiful butterfly die cut.  So I created a bit of an ombre feel to the butterfly with the centre of the butterfly darker and it lightening off towards the edges of the wings.  This also helps create a little more dimension to the die cut.  The distress inks were perfect for this effect!

To create a little bit of a contrast, I added some green colour to the white flowers.  I didn't want to completely colour the flowers, so applying it with the blending tool was just perfect.  It made for a sweet two toned effect on the flowers I used.

You can see this two toned effect here on this picture
I finished off the card with a little twine and a sentiment from my favourite sentiment packs in the Fundamentals range. 

I Hope you enjoyed my share today and that it gave you some ideas for taking your card making to the next level by added extra finishing touches with a little distress ink.

Happy Crafting!
