PDCC82 and CAS-ual Fridays #3

Another wonderful color story was given to us to work with on this week's challenge at the Play Date Cafe, and the theme for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge was Bring the Bling, so these two put together ended up in this combination:
 
I got the Elegant Weeds (CG185) from Hero Arts a while back, but this is the first time I've used it - shame on me! It is such a gorgeous stamp, and all it really needs is some ink, no coloring necessary! The background was created using alcohol ink "stonewashed", the bottom portion was colored using Distress Ink Scattered Straw.
Have a great Monday, everyone!
Anette :o)

Saw this card on flickr Anette, and wanted to see how you inked up the BG. Surprised to see that you used AI with DI, but it works really well, can I ask what paper you used to create such a wonderful effect.
The card is lovely.

Beautiful card! You are so right about that stamp--it's stashed in one of my drawers un-inked; time to change that!
