Distressing gets me stressed

Ok thought I would make a card trying to be a bit more inky and messy but not to oconvinced at this point. Made this with a few of the stamps from my Dreamy Butterflies set
I would feel better if I had used a nice paper or had created a background that was well, less messy but hey ho, nothing ventured nothing gained. The butterly is lovely though.

Out of my comfort zone

Went to a workshop by Sheena Douglass yesterday. Had a great day and managed to meet up with the lovely Fi who is on my Design Team, she was also on the workshop. Poor Sheena was rather poorly but managed to carry on til the end. A total trouper and as mad as a box of frogs lol
On the workshop we used alcohol inks which I enjoyed using on tin etc. We made 3 cards too. I must admit they are very different to what I normally do and must admit I don't favour things too distressed as i feel they always look a bit messy but thought I would post them up here anyway. I don't think i will be adopting these tequniques for my crafting but did come away with loads of hints and tips of things that I will use, ie using the alcohol inks. I have a wee project I can do with my son lined up so that should be fun.
