Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 24 - Inky Fingers

This is my DT card for this fortnights challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers. The challenge is to use ink/stains/mists of some sort on your design. You can keep it minimal such as edging around your card or really go to town and make backgrounds. Although promarkers and copics are ink they'll only be valid if you do something other than colour your image in with them such as colouring flowers or ribbons to match or making your own backgrounds.
The challenge is being sponsored by The Stampman who is offering one lucky, lucky Bloggeroony £10 to fritter in their lovely shop, where at the momento P&P is FREE!!!!
So, for my card I've used Sailboat, Pool & Silver Adirondack alcohol inks on glossy card to create the "splodgy" sea & sky background by simply adding a few spots of each colour on the applicator tool. The gorgeous image is a digi from Tiddlyinks coloured with ProMarkers and mounted onto the background with foam pads, the tree has been stamped out again & decoupaged. The whole image has clear Sakura & glitter-glue highlights.
