It's FFFFriday and time to share an oldie, distressing seems to be the key this week.

It's that time of the week again.  It's Friday and time to share an old crafting project just for fun.
Feel free to join me, all I ask is that if you do, please comment below, that way I know you are joining me.  I can then pop along to your blog and see your crafty share too, I will comment on all over the weekend.

Today and tomorrow I am at work, this weekend's special is from the Chinese selection.
The whole family are fans of the Chinese department at work so no doubt we will be participating, well it would be rude not to!  Don't you agree?

Today's oldie, in keeping with the rest of this weeks postings, is a little inky number.

I have used stamp sets by Marion Emberson at PI On your special day, It's all in the words and Build a tree.  The Spellbinder Nestabilities die is called Postage stamps.  The inks I have used are Distress inks Festive berries, Mustard seed, Ripe persimmon, Spiced marmalade, Vintage photo, Crushed olive and Peeled paint.  The seam binding is also coloured with the ink.
For the sun I used a round Spellbinder die to create a mask before getting all inky.  

A very inky week this week, don't you agree?
That's all from me this Friday, I hope you all have a good one and a super weekend whatever you have planned.  More from me tomorrow.  x

I love these inky scenes, lots of which have been blogged by various people recently. Distress inks are great for this I think, especially beautiful sunset scenes like yours. A fabulous range of stamps, love those swirls and the postage stamp sentiment sets it off beautifully.
I'm sharing an oldie too today.
Hope work goes well.

A beautiful little inky number it is too Erika, the colours are gorgeous. We shopped at M&S for tea after getting bi-focalled up, we went fishy though! Carol x

I love your oldie today. I am just about to schedule my post for tomorrow as I'm going to be without laptop for a few days. I will continue to have iPod and will try and look in but may not be able to leave a comment. I'm going to go back and enjoy the rest of the posts you have done. At first glance they all look amazing. I am loving the distressed theme

Brilliant card Erika, love the colours, scene and your fantastic design.
Sorry I missed participating, I am really down since returning from my Holiday.
I find it difficult being away from my "little corner of paradise"
Since we got back I have absolutely NO inclination to do any crafting, or sitting at the computer.
Will give myself a good shake for next week.
Hugs. Patricia xxx

A very beautiful card, Erika, the black cardstock makes the inky squares pop.

Happy Saturday sweetie!
