Quite often my crafting time is spent making cards for specific reasons so today I took some time to "play".
My first card used two Hero Arts stamps:- F5042 Leaf Flourish for the background and K5378 Hydrangea. I stamped both in Tim Holtz "Walnut Stain" distress ink and I heat embossed the Hydrangea with clear embossing powder.
My second card is an attempt at a one layer card. I used a linen card base and sponged TH Distress inks through an oval nestability cutout. I then sprayed over the inks with "Pearl" glimmer mist. The ink colours are Chipped Sapphire, Crushed Olive and Tumbled Glass. It's a bit dark, but I quite like this. The butterfly is a stampendous cling stamp. I filled in the flowers with a white gel pen.
