My Kissing Background

Here is my third and last of this weeks challenge entries.
Inky Impressions Sketch.
and Our Daily Bread designs, (you get to choose and I chose distress inks.)
I wanted to go a little shabby chic with this one.
I attempted the Kissing Technique!
It turned out really subtle, I used crushed olive and walnut stain distress inks.
Perhaps I should have used a chalk ink for a better effect.
I will have to practise some more I think, as I am not too enthusiastic about the result here.

I love it, Sue! It doesn't have to be bold. Your background is soft and delicate looking! Love the distressed edges and the beautiful metal butterfly!
