In the Classroom Reeds

Good Morning, I can see leaves beginning to form on the trees around the house now, so hopefully, spring may actually be coming!  Still a bit chilly though.
This is another card using the new 'In the Classroom' kit,

The centre panel is coloured with distress inks, just by using the blending tool.  I used several colours which blend together to form other colours.
I created a few splodges by flicking water from my fingers on to the ink, then blotting with copy paper (the splodges don't show well on the photo)
When all that was dry, I stamped the reed with archival black ink and added the heads separately.  Stamp the mini dragonflies too.
Embellish with small black gems
Mat onto black card, tear the bottom edge

For the background, I stamped the reed without any heads
Put it all together and there you have it xx
