Playing with ink and flowers

This is another card that I made yesterday at the Stampin Up workshop led by  Ruth .

Stamps and inks are Stampin up supplies - I used a script and a heart stamp randomlym using just edges of the heart stamp, both on the background, the inner raised card and the flowers and some random sponging too with the addition of a few pearls here and there. I love the combination of the aqua and purple - in fact purple is one of my favourite crafting colours, so this combo is for Sundays with Crissy 28: your favourite colour combo.

  8. I'm with you Hazel. Purple is one of my favourite colours. I love your experiments in random stamping.

    Try adding some clear embossing on versamark and then sponge ink over it as well. You can get some amazing effects.
