Agapanthus Clusters

I have a flowery card for you today...using a favourite of mine 'Agapanthus Clusters' by Stampendous. I stamped it in Distress Inks (Dusty Concord and Bundled Sage) using the watercolour technique. For the background, I used Distress Core'dinations card in the same two colours...stamping Penny Black 'Circles & Lines' on to Dusty Concord card in Dusty Concord ink...and Hero Arts 'Scattered Dots' on to the Bundled Sage card in...yes...Bundled Sage ink. The purple lace was a gift from my lovely friend Samantha...and the sentiment stamp is from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set. I inked around all of the edges with some 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, and added a few adhesive pearls.
