Firey Flowers

Shock horror...it's a non-Christmas card today! But don't worry...I have four coming your way later this week! lol I used the acrylic block technique on this card...inking it up with 'Fired Brick', 'Spiced Marmalade' and 'Wild Honey' Distress Inks. I then stamped 'Agapanthus Clusters' (by Stampendous) over the top in black Versafine. The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.
