Distressed - Part 2

Here comes another disress inked card -

Distress inks : Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed
Stamps : Hero arts Wild flower garden
Inks: Ranger Archival Ink Pad JET BLACK

It's very simple and easy and it just took me 15 mins to make this card...Earlier I was not getting the distressing right as I didn't have a blending tool and was using a sponge. But now I made my own belnding tool and it works wonders. I had a wooden stamp handle. I attached a piece of foam (The one which u get in packings) using a two way tape. And voila! The blending tool is ready. You can change the foam for using different colours or when if gets worned out.

I am submitting this card to following challenge -
