Agapanthus Clusters

I've been getting inky again...inspired by a wonderful card here on Chupa's blog...which I stumbled upon whilst googling the other night. I loved her layout, and simple stamping with different shades of green, so I thought I'd CASE her card and play along with her weekly sketch challenge this week at the same time. I masked off a strip across the centre of a piece of card, then blended 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink over it...fading out to one side. I then stamped 'Agapanthus Clusters' ( by Stampendous) over the top, in several shades of blue Distress Inks ('Faded Jeans', 'Stormy Sky' & 'Chipped Saphire'), and a sentiment from the Hero Arts 'Sentiments' set in black. I matted it on to some card tinted with more 'Stormy Sky' before adding it to my card blank.
