An Antiqued Sentiment (Copic Colour Challenge 12) & SC227...

To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

I have been curious about Distress Inks for a while, and thought I would try my hand at an "antiqued" card. The Copic Colour Challenge seemed a good fit, as the colors were browns and flesh tones. The sketch is from the Splitcoast Stampers Card Sketch. For a little extra touch, I sprinkled microbeads at the center of each flower. Bean Tip: Use care when using microbeads - a spill will have you occupied for the rest of the day!
