I also used distress black soot ink on all the paper edges. If you would like more information on Allsorts DT call click on the icon in the right side bar.

pins & pearls



I made this card from graphic 45 paper and bazzill cardstock. The tan paper is basic grey kraft paper that I embossed with a embossing folder and my big shot, added distress ink black soot to the embossing . I also used the old paper distressed ink on all paper edges. The image was computer generated on water color paper cut out and colored with watercolor pencils. The flowers were cut out with my ecraft machine and layered together. The leaves are cut  from spellbinders assorted leaves dies. I also added the pin with the butterfly and a couple of beads. I enjoyed making this card.
