It's TIME for Triple Tiara Tuesday!

Hello! I'm back here with you to share with you my Triple Tiara Tuesday challenge! As some of you might know about Queen Kat Designs challenge and if you don't for more info. go on over the the Queen Kat Designs blog to find out more! It's a fun challenge and you can win STAMPS!

This week 3 of the design team members were challenged to make a card and use alcohol inks or distress ink. I choose the distress ink. I love this technique and use it on many of my cards! The card I made today is using one of the NEW stamps that will be released tomorrow, March 2nd at the Queen Kat Designs store! Her name is Vanessa by Samantha Nowak..isn't she a cutie?!?! I distressed the edges around the stamped image on the white piece of cardstock.
