Distress Inks and Chipboard

The first card is a birthday card that I used two different distress inks on the background of it. and then used some distress ink on the flower it self, for the leaves I used some really old looking green paper on it, then distressed the edges with sandpaper and inked them with a dye ink a darker tone of green. and put a touch of stickles gold glitter in the center of the flower. The card itself is an old vintage double sided cardstock I had and the tag is using the otherside of the paper for the inside part stamped the saying and bee with black ink.

The second card is again made with this double sided cardstock that I have, part of the same pack as the first one, one side is the red and the other side is the stripe. the chipboard flowers are done with dye ink in strawmat color and distressed and used teabag distress ink on the outside and in the middle then a red rhinestone in the center. The butterfly is done teabag distress on the antennae and the body, then the whole thing is done in the redbrick distress ink, then I had some tiny amber rhinestones which I added on and red onto the antenae. For the saying I used embrace life. from stampn' up. The slider was made with a rectangle piece of the same paper and just used ribbon punch from stampn up to make it into a slider. found some old looking ribbon and attached to card, with slider.
