Thinking of You...

I have an inky kind of card to share today...I started by inking up an acrylic block with some Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint & Forest Moss), then spritzing it with water, before stamping it on to smooth white card. I then stamped some grasses and flowers over the green area, and added a couple of dragonflies above (all stamps from the 'Just for You' set by Hobby Art)...colouring the dragonflies' wings using watercolour pencils. The sentiment stamp is from a little set by Studio G.
