Dye Ink Over Pigment Ink

I try not to miss PTI MIM challenges, so here's my last minute entry using the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. It's been a long time since I tried this technique.  Hero Arts flourish is stamped in white pigment ink on white cardstock.  When it
dried I stamped over it with the image from PTI Turning A New Leaf using Distress Ink evergreen bough. The horizontal strip is done with only the Distress Ink & a smaller image from the same set. I really like the sentiment which is from PTI Lovely Leaves, although a larger font would have been better for this card. Thanks for taking time to check out my blog.
