Word Play Inspiration at Country View Challenges

Hello to you all,I am back with my second sample for Country View Crafts and the theme is 

"Word Play"
Sorry not so many pics of how I did this...silly me got so carried away I forgot to take them.
I started by inking my tag with Faded Jeans, Shaded Lilac and Black soot Distress inks while masking the moon. Then I stamped the images.

I coloured the raindrops  with picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress inks, and then stamped on the quote with black Versafine ink

To finish off I added some gingham ribbon

Happy Birthday for Chocolate Baroque

Hello to you all, I am back with another sample made from the new stamps that have just been released for August over at Chocolate Baroque. My card uses one of the stamps from  the "Thistle Butterfly"  stamp sheet which I have inked up and coloured Dusty Concord and Bundled Sage  Distress inks. I then inked around the edge  again with Dusty Concord and then matted this onto white card.......

My background was made by inking all over with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then over stamping with another one of the stamps from the sheet.  The butterfly has been inked up with the same colour too and cut out. All that was left to do was to assemble it all together and add the sentiment.
 For some reason the purple button shows as blue.xxx
