TIME OUT Challenge # 53

This week, there is an "inspired by words" challenge at Time Out Challenges

'A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water' by Eleanor Roosevelt

You can be inspired by just one word or more or go for the whole quote.

Here's my card

 I was inspired by the thought of "strong women". I used a stamp from the Unity Stamp set - ... i am woman. To add colour, I used distress inks (spiced marmalade, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry and festive berries). I smooshed some ink on a teflon sheet, spritzed some water and lifted the ink with a ziploc bag and applied it to the card front. I find that I have a bit more control of where the colour goes (or doesn't go). I added three sequins for a bit of sparkle.

  3. I like using the smooshing technique and it worked well with your sentiment.
