Tulip tesserae

The last fortnight has been about Hybrid inks at Paper Artsy and I saw many inspiring techniques and projects. Despite the lack of time I was determined to enter the challenge...

I chose Wanda's technique, which you can read for yourselves here.

 After inking with the Distress Oxides (Salty Ocean, Wilted violet and Picked Raspberry) I stamped the tulip from the ELB02 set.

The sentiment is from the ELB03 set.

In the top left hand corner I used matte paste as Wanda had said that the effect was more subtle than glossy paste and I wanted to compare both.
Here's a close-up :

Love the effect... I hope you do too!
Have a great Sunday,
