I have a couple of cards to share today using a new (to me) background stamp by WOW called 'Tropical'. I started by stamping it on to watercolour paper using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed using white embossing powder. On one card I painted the individual flowers using Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet & Seedless Preserves & Salty Ocean), and on the other I blended the same colours of Distress Inks over the top. I distressed the edges, and added a sentiment (from the 'Doodled Flowers' set by Happy Little Stampers).

Here are a couple of close-ups of the two cards:
