Botanical

Morning and what a lovely morning it is went to sainsbury early to get the shopping in and my grandson was going along the shelves putting food in the trolley.....he enjoyed himself even if we haven't got a dog but still wanted to buy some dog food lol
Todays card is based around the theme at Gingersnap Creations which is... Botanical. The stamps are from Crafty Individuals and come as a set of 4. Each one was distressed in ink and then glimmer mist added....which doesn't show particularly well ......I used Purple Concord with Purple Pansy, Marigold with Tuscan Sun, Victorian Velvet with Tea rose and Chipped sapphire with Denim Blue, I then distressed the edges using gold embossing powder and added a black ink to the edges and rubbed it into the gold to get a more aged look. The edges from the paper was done the same way....again this is from Crafty Individuals..... The Springtime Book  which has such yummy papers but you kinda don't want to use them. At Crafty Creations the theme is .....Distressing.





Close up of images and the flower in the centre was misted as well.
