Playing with Distress Inks.....

 I wanted to take a try at distress ink sponging and embossing an image.  I really like how it turned out that is for sure. First step was to take my Stamping Bella image "Flower Garden" and emboss the images on watercolour paper. Then I  sponged the flowers in Fired Brick and Spun Sugar. The petals and the edges were sponged with Forest Moss and Peeled Paint. Oh I just loved how it turned out.
I stamped the "beautiful" sentiment with Stazon ink on vellum and then placed a little bit of glue to the sides of the vellum so it would stay in place in front of the image! I am going to be doing this again but putting a " mother" sentiment for Mother's Day.  This is for another class at Stamping Bella so I am hoping the ladies really enjoy this one!  Enjoy your day!
I would like to thank Paula for always inspiring me with all her works of art!
