Agapanthus Clusters

I had some lucky charity shop finds recently, and among them was an 'Agapanthus Bloom' stamp by Stampendous. I used it to create a background to go with my 'Agapanthus Clusters' stamp...also by Stampendous. I inked both stamps using Distress Inks...Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire & Forest Moss...spritzed with a little water, then stamped them on to watercolour paper. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Doodled Flowers' set by Happy Little Stampers.
