Bamboo & Butterflies

Hello.. few things to share today!

Last weekend was my mom's birthday- she was out of town so I had a little more time to play with her card.  I decided to play along with the Hero Arts challenge color layering technique..

I layered shades of Peeled Paint Distress ink for the bamboo, and shades of Dusty Concord Distress & Colorbox pigment ink in heliotrope.  I also made the flower embellishment with a flower punch smeared in the same dusty concord ink w/water & perfect pearls...
