Blooming Meadows...Again!

I'm sorry if you're getting fed up with seeing me use this stamp...but I can't help it...I love it! Just to be different, this card is A6 sized...with the fold on the short edge. I coloured directly on to the stamp ('Blooming Meadows' by Hero Arts) using Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Forest Moss, Faded Jeans, Chipped Saphire & Dusty Concord)...then spritzed it with a little water, and stamped it through a circular mask (cut using one of my Nesties)...not sure if it really works, but you can just about tell it's in the shape of a circle - I also tried it with the circle embossed...but I didn't like that one! lol
The sentiment stamp is from the 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black.

Soooo beautiful Helen, I love how you stamped through an aperture! The stamp design lends itself so well to this technique and the individual colours on the flowers are amazing :)
