Try Me Tuesday

It's Try Me Tuesday over at My Creative Time.  Today we are making a card in a "slide puzzle" design.  You know those little slide puzzles that you get in party bags or as prizes ~ fun little puzzles!!  The idea for this card is pretty much the same way and looks pretty on a finished card.  You can see the technique here ~ which is pretty much what I reviewed before starting my card.  This was a fun technique and I was able to use my new Tim Holtz mini distress inks with the round blending tool.  My daughter was watching me and decided this was pretty fun so she started "blending" colors on paper!!
Here is my card:

The orange distress ink I used actually turned out to look a little more like yellow with the blue and pink so I accented the background paper with yellow.

I love the look when you leave the die cut on the cut sentiment and then blend ink around ~ I did this technique with the circle dies.
These distress inks are perfect for white cardstock die cuts ~ I used the pink on a die cut butterfly so it would totally match plus I could "shade" the wings!
