These cards use a technique using distressing inks.
The technique was recently demonstrated by Zoe on the fb group Mad Crafters Giggles.
I was looking for greens
according to this colour combo:
The idea is to tape down the card blank with masking tape, tear a piece of scrap paper down the middle and tape the pieces over the base leaving a gap.
Distress ink is then applied to this gap.
I used 'forest moss', 'shabby shutters' and 'evergreen bough'.
I then overprinted with this lovely stamp - Star Flowers from darkroom door in Australia.
Here's one of my green cards:

Star Flowers - reliably flower all year round in Australia.
Having seen the above picture I decided to do a pink version.
This time I used a cream card base rather than white
and 'Victorian velvet', 'spun sugar' and 'worn lipstick'.
