Coffee and Roses Collage

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a thank-you card.  I used a gorgeous image from STAMPlorations called Coffee and Roses Collage, which was a freebie at one point (thank you, Shery!).  There is a new freebie now and I hope to feature that one soon.

To colour this image, I tried something different.  I used Distress Oxides with my make-up brushes.  It was fun, and I will most likely use this technique again!

Clear stamp: STAMPlorations The Birds and the Blooms
Inks:  Distress Oxides (Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy, Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Scattered Straw), Lawn Fawn Jet Black
Die:  Spellbinders Lacey Circles, MFT Die-namics Wonky Stitched Circle Stax,Gina Marie Designs Ribbon Bow, JoyCraft Butterfly Trio
Patterned paper:  Violet Bloom 6x6
Other:  Posca white paint marker, sequins, flower sequin

Lovely card, Kitty. I'm going to imagine that's a cup of hot tea with the roses. Your make up brushes worked great with the Distress Oxides. Nice to hear. [Bunny]
