This card is for a line dance friend who is recovering from a serious illness. I sponged Spun Sugar Distress ink onto water color paper and sprayed it with water to create the background. The flower is a retired Close to My Heart stamp. I created the paper for the flower by smooshing 3 distress inks separately on a craft sheet. I sprayed each area with water, and using a paint brush, splashed each onto some water color paper to create a random pattern. After stamping the flower, I fussy cut it and glued it on the pink panel. I added a sentiment and some sequins. Voila!
I like the flower from my hand made designer paper. I stamped and fussy cut two other (different) flowers and saved them to use another time. I'm really liking distress inks. I recently added some mini ones to my collection and intend to use them soon. I want to work on my blending.
