Where Creativity Meets C9 - Challenge Guest

Wow, so excited
to have been chosen as the last challenge winner
to now be a guest for the 
April Challenge!

I Loooove one layer cards
and really have a NEW trick that adds
more interest without
another layer!

I stamped the image and then cute it 
out and used it to mask my finished card.
I used a cotton swab to dab and smear
color around the image.

Thanks so much to my pal
Kerry, I was able to test "drive"
the Distress Oxide Inks.

Concord & 9th

The bloom on the LEFT has water splatter, 
the one on the RIGHT, I swooshed
the inks with a water brush to 
see the difference.
The water splatter, I think
definitely is more lovely.
