Agapanthus Clusters

I have an 'inky' card to share today...using 'Agapanthus Clusters' by Stampenous. I inked up the stamp using Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Crushed Olive & Forest Moss), then stamped it a couple of times (without re-inking in between) on to wet card. Once the card had dried, I stamped it a few more times (once again ithout re-inking) over the top to give a more detailed impression. Then I simply added a sentiment (from the Hero Arts 'Fabulous Birthday' set) and distressed the edges a little before mounting it on to my card blank.

A really super Birthday card Helen, perfect colour and stamping.

And as you have used my all time fav stamp I do hope it will be OK with you if I add it my Stampendous P107 board on Pinterest.
