sending happy thoughts

Decided to get a bit inky today, fairly pleased with the result! It's for this weeks Less is More challenge 'polka dots'.

I used three stamps, all Hero Arts, little fancy bird, cling dots and happy day. I heat embossed the dots with white powder and then used three distress inks, victorian velvet, crushed olive and scattered straw. The bird was coloured with the same inks.

Oh, and I have some news, can't share yet, but I'm so excited!
