Live Life In Colour

 Hi all
A few of my friends have gotten together and started a new online craft store. called In2craft.... How Fab is that .. I have been asked to be a member of their DT  so here is my 3rd project for them..
In2craft have a Facebook page  for all things craft inspired so do pop over and have a look what they are up to and indeed upload any tips or things you have made yourself to inspire others. You will find a link to their online store   In2craft. too .
Their  prices are amazing and they are super speedy in sending out your orders mine arrived 24 hrs after ordering .I ordered 3 of the new Phil Martin collage stamps and this is the second project i have made using one of them ... There will be others i warn you because the stamps are stunning.
This 3rd project features the Henna Stamp from Phil Martin.. I used a piece of white mount board and inked it up with ,Mustard seed ,wild honey,fired brick and seedless preserves Tim Holtz distress ink. I then stamped the Henna stamp using stayzon ink over the inked mountboard once it dried  . I then heat embossed it with versamark clear sticky ink and Ultra thick embossing powder ... I edged the mountboard with a black promarker to hide the white edges.
I mounted it onto a  piece of sue wilson black foundation card 
I used the same inks around  the outside of a piece of white card so i had another matt layer to sit this all on . I finished it with a butterfly and a computer generated sentiment cut into individual words and again inked with the same ink colours i have used throughout the project ...I really enjoyed getting messy with the inks again its been a while since i used them . It is also nice to branch out of my usual fussy , girly cards ..I hope you like it and have a go at it for yourself .. I have made a video for you tube showing how to create it for yourself it can be found here at Traceys creative place ...
