Stampers Anonymous "Mini Bouquet CMS269" New Home Card

A good friend asked if I would make a new home card for a special aunt.  I actually don't make cards for other people.  I don't like the stress iand pressure it puts me under, so I usually decline.  But I made an exception this time.  The brief I had was flowers.

I used a Stampers Anonymous stamp set called "Mini Bouquet - CMS269" for the flowers, stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I used the same ink for the Papertrey Ink sentiment which is part of the "Love Lives Here" clear stamp set, which I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I used a selection of Distress Oxide Inks, applied by a paint brush.  I used the "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Ink for the background colour.  I added white highlights with a Posca Pen and a subtle gold shimmer using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
