Stampin on the Weekend

A fun Monochromatic fall card for the weekend.
I played around with the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by Tim Holtz- basically, you dab Distress ink on your craft mat, spritz it then run your cardstock through it. I had a bit of left over ink, so used the Technique Junkie instructions from the last newsletter to dye the ribbon to match as well. I had 2 pieces of the technique, so used a piece of the 2nd to stamp the floral image from Technique Junkies in Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I wanted a little more punch to the background, so inked up a small area of a Technique Junkies background and stamped it randomly on the background. 
 I added a dragonfly from the Sweet Stamps Picolo line and embossed it with Enamel embossing powder- which has a touch of sparkle in it.
