It's my turn to be your designer over at Muse this week.
My card today is a little different for me but I hope you can get some inspiration from it. I bought a couple of stamps from Imagination Crafts at a show last year and still hadn't used them so I put one to use on this card. I love how the stamped part is the background rather than the focal images.
I started by stamping the image in black ink off the edge of a white panel and then embossed it in clear embossing powder. I then used Distress Inks to watercolour the flowers. I tried to stay true to the colours of echinacea flowers (also known as coneflowers), although never realised they can also be yellow, white and orange (thanks Google!). The sentiment was stamped in black before being mounted offset over some orange textured cardstock.
