Flowers All Over

Today's card features another charity shop find...the stamp is an old Dovecraft one, from the Kate Knight collection. I stamped it on to watercolour paper using Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Tattered Rose, Milled Lavender & Tumbled Glass), then gave it a spritz with some water to soften the stamping a little. I then stamped some more flowers over the top using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed them using 'Kaleidoscope' power by Stampendous. I heat embossed a sentiment (from the 'Doodled Flowers' set by Happy Little Stampers) in white on a snippet of black card. I distressed all of the edges a little, and matted the flowery panel on some more black card.


It's so difficult to get the embossed flowers to show...in real life they're multicoloured and super sparkly!
