Let's Get Inky - Let's Scrap Challenge 188

Good morning!!!  I was asked to be a contributing DT for Lori's challenge at Let's Scrap, and I was super excited to play along . . . and then I totally forgot about it . . . :-(  But I still wanted to play!

Here is what the challenge is about:
My challenge to you is to get inky!!!
Requirements:  Card or Layout using any Let's Scrap past sketch and ink.  This can be misting, spraying, dripping, and/or inking edges.  Get brave and try a tad bit more ink than you typically use.

The Rules:
This challenge cannot be combined with the weekly main page sketch, special month-long cite-sponsored sketch, the BAM (Book about Me) challenges or the Scrap your Stash Challenge.

The layout must be something you scrapped new for this challenge not something that you previously made.

Here is my take  . . .

Here are a closer look . . .

I used my stamp pad and different Bo Bunny stamps on my background paper and flowers . . .

Colored my title chipboard with Distress Ink and then covered it with Glossy Accent . . .

Some white and Distress Stain splatters and highlighted some areas on my background paper with Distress Ink.

To color the doily, I first dabbed Distress Ink all over (Old Paper and Walnut Stain), and then sprayed it lightly with water.  Scrunch it up, straighten out and let dry.  I love how it turned out!

Here is how to create this layout.  You will need:
1 x C64 008
1 x C64 006
DC64 006
MC64 001A – “Notice All Ladies . . .”
1 x Craft Cardstock
2 x Dollies
Metal Brooch
2 x Buttons
3 x Bling
Distress Ink, Distress Stain

Glossy Accent/Dimensional Glaze

Cut C64 008 down to 11.75” x 11.75”.  Distress and ink edges.
Using different stamps, stamp randomly on the background paper.
Stain doily by dabbing Distress Ink (Old Paper and Walnut Stain) all over the doily.  Lightly spray with water and scrunch.  Straighten doily out and let dry.  You can also use a heat tool/blow dryer to dry.
Cut 1 x doily (white) to fit against left edge of the layout.
Layer the stained doily over the white doily.
Cut a rectangle piece measuring 2.75” x 8.5” from C64 006.  Layer this piece together with burlap and 1 more piece of co-ordinating patterned paper at the bottom of the doily.  Measure with your photo to ensure it will show underneath once your photo has been glued down.
Glue down your photo.
Color your title chipboard with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) and then cover with Glossy Accent/Dimensional Glaze.  Let it dry, and then add to your page.
Using the twine, make a bow and place just under the “U” of unwind. 
Stamp on your flowers, and add to your page.  Layer one flower over the twine bow.
On right hand side of page, layer 2 small pieces of paper and burlap.
Add flower, button and bling.
Cut the “Notice:  All ladies . . .” from MC64 001A and glue on a metal brooch.  Cover with Glossy Accent/Dimensional Glaze en set aside to dry.  Once dry, add to page.
Add paint splatters by using white Mist and brown Distress Stain.

That's it . . . You're all done!!  Wishing you all a fab Sunday!!
