Five in a Row

Today's card is a flowery one...the stamp is called 'Five in a Row' by Woodware, and I heat embossed in white on to a piece of watercolour paper, adding a sentiment (from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts) in black, and heat embossing that with clear embossing powder. I watercoloured the flowers using Distress Inks (Bundled Sage, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Shaded Lilac, Tattered Rose & Victorian Velvet), giving a light wash of 'Stormy Sky' all over, fading it out towards the top of the paper. I lightly distressed the edges before adding the panel to a kraft card blank.
