Continuing on with our wonderful muse for July, Dawn Woleslagle, we have this fabulous card to inspire us.

From the original I used the double layered die cuts, central panel on a square card and the repeat patterning. And here is my card.

I’ve been wanting to try out a technique I’ve seen in various places but is new to me. Here’s one example by Jennifer McGuire. I used two colours of distress inks and a squirt of glimmer mist to create a two tone, watercolour effect for the background panel. I really like the final result even if it did take me several attempts to get the right amount of inks and mist to give a good effect. You should see the colour of my fingers! Getting messy inky is not normally something I do but it was good fun!

Please pop by the other design team girls and see how they were inspired.
