Getting Inky with Thank you

Hello friends

How is your weekend going?
I'm heading to London today for a day out with some friends,
we are doing a little tour of Buckingham Palace
and an afternoon tea (absolutely no crafting at all!)

But talking of crafting...
I'm generally a clean crafter but for a change with this card project
I got a little inky.

Using watercolour card I created the background with Distress Oxides.
(Dabbing the inks onto a mat, spritzing with water and dragging the card through).
Once dry, I foiled over Thank You Hot Foil Plate in silver.

Really simple and then matting with silver foil card and some patterned paper
from my scrap box (that incidentally, is not getting any smaller!)

I think it looks effective and the boys commented on this one 
so I think that's a plus!

Right I had better catch that train.
Take care friends, enjoy your Sunday.
