Sunset Meadows

I have an 'inky' card to share today...I played with some of my Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick), blending them over a piece of white card with the bottome masked off using a piece of scrap card with a torn edge to create the background. I then stamped one of my favourite stamps ('Blooming Meadows' by Hero Arts) over the top a few times in black before removing the mask, and adding the sentiment (from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts).
