Just because

This is a third card made from the inky session I had using my home made spray of DIs, perfect pearls and water, using a further piece of card used to mop up stray ink. You can see the first two cards below this post.

I stamped a Tattered angels tattered textures stamp a few times with Brilliance pearlescent ivy. I mounted on to another offcut rescued originally from the William Morris stationery wallect, then mounted on to a dark green card blank. The sentiment circle is from Craftwork cards.
