CAS on Friday, Color Throwdown, HLS Watercolour, Inkspirational, Seize The Birthday

Dear crafting friends, I hope you are having a good weekend.

Flowers are one of my favourite themes for card-making and this one was inspired by the Color Throwdown colours (orange, brown and green). These colours are autumnal but when I saw the combination I thought about these flower stamps. 

I inked my stamp with distress markers, misted with water and stamped. More distress inks were added using water and paint brush.

Linking up at five challenges:
CAS on Friday - Flowers
Color ThrowdownOrange, brown and green
Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking!

For your blog

I love this stamp and you made it proud. I love the coloring and that technique. I forgot to comment on your last card. It is a gorgeous use of tissue paper and the die cut over it is lovely. Hope your mom is doing better.
