Wildflowers in Bloom

I've used more lovely new goodies on today's card...a set of Hero Arts stamps called 'Wildflowers in Bloom', which I stamped using the watercolour technique and Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn & Forest Moss). I started by blending 'Old Paper' Distress Ink over three panels of white card, then stamped my Herp Arts 'Music Background' stamp over the top (inked in 'Old Paper', but with some of the ink removed before stamping). I inked around the edges using 'Tea Dye', then stamped the flowers over the top. I mounted them on to the card blank using 3D foam, and added a sentiment from the 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black.
