Lime and Cherry

This card was an experimental one; the background is made with a large Hero Art wood pattern stamp, it was inked with Distress Ink and set it aside.

In the mean time I inked a Penny Black stamp from the Illumination set with another colour and stamped it several times (with a little twist) onto the Hero Arts stamp.

At this point the large stamp needs a huff or a light mist of water and then you're ready to stamp it onto paper and voilĂ  you've got a new background to use!

The sentiment, flower pot and small flowers are Impression Obsession, heat embossed with clear powder and coloured with Sakura pens. The swirl is a TH and also heat embossed.

The colours are also experimental, way out of my comfort zone, but I quite like them now when the weather is hot, or maybe I've only got to many hours out in the sun!
