Julia Spiri Stamps challenge - ATG with option

Good morning and a new month! 
Now this can only mean that it is time for a new challenge at Julia Spiri Stamps
As always our challenge is
but if you fancy a twist then like the Design Team 
Try a different colouring method
you are welcome to use other makes of stamps to join us but we would love you to use one of Julias
Most important is that you come and join us.
So here is my card using Little Gnome which is available from the shop HERE
I have used my Distressed Ink pads and coloured my image. I usually use them to shade my papers and card and do my ground work.

I didnt have any watercolour card that would go through my printer so used some smooth card.
Kept it CAS with just some faux stitching and matted onto some olive pearl card.
Some pearls in same colour and some trendy Twine I recently won.
Well what do you think.
lots more practice I think and some watercolour card 
Leave me a comment have you any tips do you use distressed inks.
So head on over and checkout what other methods the team have been playing with.
Remember this is a optional twist and our challenge is ANYTHING GOES
