Altenew January 2018 challenge : you inspire me!

Hi there !

I always look forward to the first of every month to take on the inspiration challenge at the Altenew blog. Erum provided us this month with the most amazing card in yummylicious colors!

To add to the excitement I used a brand new to me stamp set :)

A closer look:

  • Versafine black ink
  • Distress inks for the stamped splattered background
