Inspire!



This card was a lot of fun to create because instead of sketching out an idea, I just kind of went with it. All stamps are from Impression Obsession. I measured out a center path, stamped one of the Solid Flowers down the center, used the line stamp from the Borders set to separate and then chose another stamp from the Solid Flower set down the other two sides. I antiqued the paper using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea color. I just brushed it on with a duster. The rest is simple, I edged the black mat with gold leaf pen, stamped one of the Solid Flowers using markers and popped the stamen of the flower just by coloring it with a Permaletter pen. The rest is just matting... and DONE! I loved the way this turned out.
