Not My Normal Style

Hey there! I have something a little different today. I went a little crazy with the distress ink. LOL! Not my usual style, but I kinda like it. I started with some Orange Zest cardstock. I inked up some Technique Tuesday faux stitching stamps and made the border (its crooked... I should have penciled it in first.) Then I made the yellow mat, stamped on the sentiment in dark chocolate. Then I inked both like crazy with distress ink in brown corduroy. Next I got a scrap of cream and stamped on the birdhouses. I colored them with my copics and then stamped on the bird in hawaiian shores. Finally I used dark chocolate and chai ink all over it. I glued everything down and added some orange zest buttons. Thats it for today!

Well it isn't your usual style but you are good at it anyway! Is there anything you can't do? *smile* I LOVE the inking...really looks aged and interesting. And of course I love orange...
