Blended crackle background.

Hi everyone,
I was inspired by one of Tammy Tuterow's Beautiful Blends tutorials to try these
 distress ink colours together.
 Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Ground Espresso.
Tammy has some amazing combinations that look great together!

The background Stamp is one I've had for ages and this is it's first inking! 
So I'm entering Darnell's latest NBUS challenge where using your never before used schtuff is all the go!

At AAA Cards the theme is blending.

Simon Says Stamp Monday has a Go Fish theme. 
I'm hoping starfish and seahorses count as fish!

What amazing rich texture you achieved here, Cathy! I think I would be tempted to wear your embellies and beautifully crackled background!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell

wow this caught my eye in the NBUS challenge, it is so beautiful and I loved the crackling. I think it would also fit the peacock feather colour challenge here you can combine with five challenges so you would be ok.
