DCM 'Ink It Up'

It's Friday and time for another fun challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.  It's my turn to set the dare this week and I've chosen...
Ink It Up!

I'd like to see cards using ink - there are lots of choices, perhaps you could ink up an image or patterned stamp, or even use spray inks to create a background.  Let's see how inventive we can be with this crafty basic!

Here is my card....

I decided to use only the craft items that were closest to me to make my card, so neutrals it is then!  I started with some pretty papers from MME The Sweetest Thing Lavender set.  I added a paper doily topped with a nestie label.  The little cluster is a small seam binding ribbon and natural crochet lace tied in bows, a white cherry blossom and a couple of white heart pins.  

For the 'ink it up' part of the challenge, I stamped a DRD butterfly stamp in Sahara Sand adding a few pearls to the body.  I also grabbed my recent purchase from Paper Sweeties, a set of sentiments, I settled with 'Celebrate Your Day' also inked with Sahara Sand.  

Don't forget to check out the beautiful cards from the DT.
