Some old favorites

Today I would like to share a card created using a couple of my favorite stamp sets~Touch of Nature and Floral background. Floral has always been one of my favorite, most used backgrounds, but I think this is actually the first time I have colored in the image and used it as a focal point.

I stamped both the background and focal piece using the new Basic Gray ink. Using my aqua painter and ink pooled in my ink pad lids, I colored the floral and butterfly images. Cutting out that butterfly can be a bit tricky...but worth the effort. I attached it to the card using Stampin' dimensionals. I think this card turned out really pretty...hope you like it too.

Stamps: Touch of Nature, Floral background & Everyday Flexible Phrases
Ink: Basic Gray, Black Stazon, various for water coloring
Card stock: Perfect Plum, Basic Gray, Whisper White & Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Photo Corners & Window Word punches, Eggplant grosgrain, rhinestone brads
