Snails In Love!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. It is now time for challenge #15 at Hooked On Craft Challenges and the theme this fortnight is 'try something new'. I recently purchased distress inks and distress re-inkers (I accidently found myself purchasing every colour, but my excuse it that I got them on sale!). I have never tried to colour with distress inks so I thought this challenge was a perfect opportunity to have a go. I actually found it quite difficult to do, but I had fun so i'll definitely keep practicing! My cute stamp is called "two snails on a heart" and is from Hooked On Craft. My gorgeous flowers and leaves are also from Hooked On Craft and are new items! I love the quality of the flowers and these new ones are stunning (especially the flower buds!). My background hearts were cut out with Spellbinders and my birds and small hearts are Martha Stewart punches.
Please join us at Hooked On Craft Challenges for our 'try something new' challenge! Can't wait to see what new things you all come up with!
