Funky Fossil - Beautiful Inside and Out (under the weather card)

Today I received an order I'd placed with Funky Fossil Designs. I'd realised there was one stamp set that I didn't have, so thought I should add it to my collection.  It's the "Beautiful Inside and Out".

I stamped the Funky Fossil "Beautiful Inside and Out" floral branch image in Versafine "Smokey Gray" ink.  I then used the same ink to stamp a Papertrey Ink sentiment within the floral wreath.

Using the following Distress Oxide Inks, I painted the floral wreath (Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet for the flowers and Tea Dye and Walnut Stain for the branches).

I then painted the backgroud using "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Ink.  

I lay the Funky Fossil "Crackle Background" Stencil over the prepared image, using low tack tape to keep it in position.  I then applied "Iced Spruce" Distress Oxide Inks with a finger blender, this allowed me to get cover into the smaller areas around the wreath.

Finally, using a gold shimmer Sakura Gelly Roll pen, I outlined the wreath to give a very subtle shine to it.
