I like having an inspiration card and find it gets me thinking about stamps I have which I may be able to use to CASE the card. I remembered I had a lovely flower stamp from Technique Tuesdays which I felt would work. I stamped the flower in distress ink and then painted it with various colours of distress ink. I gave the background a light wash with antique linen distress ink to tone down the white card. Finally I used a stitched die to cut out the image before mounting it on a watercolour card.
Stamps - Technique Tuesday Agapanthus set
Distress inks - chipped sapphire, faded jeans, stormy sky, bundled sage, forest moss and antique linen
Archival ink - cobalt
Die - Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle stackable
