Arctic Joy

I couldn't resist playing along this week at Less is More.
The theme is 'purple and gold'.
What a fabulous combo that is, and there are lots of stunning cards already up.
Here's my entry.

I am having lots of fun with inks at the moment, and learning as I go along.
This is the second time I've attempted water drops on my blended background. 
I flicked them on with a paint brush, but they don't show up too well.  
Any tips???

This is absolutely stunning Caroline! What a beautiful design - that background looks fantastic with the inking and postage stamp edge. The penguins are adorable, and brilliantly coloured <3 Super card and a pleasure to look at it. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More :)

Love your background, those colours look great together. Super cute card and that frame is fab. As for the water drops, this works best with Distress Inks, I see that some of your blending is with Versa Color which are pigment inks which don't react in the same way with water. Hope this helps x
Thanks for sharing with us.
