Spring Meadows

I've been playing with my Distress Inks again...and one of my favourite stamps...'Blooming Meadows' by Hero Arts. I used three colours...'Dusty Concord', 'Stormy Sky' and 'Bundled Sage'... to watercolour stamp the flowers...and then to blend on to white card and stamp my 'Paisley Swirls' background (also a Hero Arts stamp). I softened the edges a little using 'Old Paper' and my distressing tool...and added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black.
