Milled Lavendar? core colour card...

I wanted to try a couple of ideas that I have had in my head for a while
with distress inks and core colour card...
Now bare with me on this one...
When buying some core colour card stock with the intention of sanding it to reveal the whiter colour core I came across some white core colour and scratched my head several times as to why you would want to buy white core colour that had a white core??? 
well I got some as you do and figured that one day I would figure out why....

Sooooo today was the day and with some experimenting this is what I discovered...
you can used distress inks on it wait for it to dry!! (A little more than I did)
and then you can sand to reveal the white core!
COOL hu!

sooo here is my card that I made using the distress core white
and I coloured it with milled lavender distress inks
I used a couple of challenges for inspiration too!

Spoon full of Sugar - Distress inks, glitter and pearls
as I love distress inks I have used them to colour the lili of the valley image 
and then distressed the card stock and stamped the mini daisies in lavender in the background card stock too! added glitter to the sunflower, leaves and butterflies. and a few pearls to finish off.
