Distressed sparklers

This card was prompted by the picture given for Less is more 131 colour challenge:

I used an ivory card blank, masking off a couple of lines near the top and bottom. I swiped the middle section with antique linen distress ink and the top and bottom with tea dye ink. Having removed the masking tapes I used a brush to dust some mustard seed distress ink. The Penny Black sparklers stamp was inked with brushed corduroy distress ink.

This is also for:
