Distress Background with Power Poppy Camelias

Hello and I hope you are doing well today.  Things are starting to slow down a little around here, so I have had some more time for stamping.  

I had been doing a lot of watercoloring, but today, I wanted to get a darker background and that is easier with sponging distress inks.

(Click on images for more detail.)

I really like this layout for stamping flowers, I find that many of my flower images can be stamped repeatedly like this.  I sponged the distress inks on over the embossed flowers and then flicked a little water over the whole thing.  I think it looks like a rainy day, of which we have had many this spring!


Supplies: Power Poppy Simply Camelia stamp set, Versamark ink, Recollections Silver Embossing powder, Distress inks Broken China, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves, Versafine black ink, sequins from my stash

I would love to participate in the following challenge:

  6. I love how moody this design is, Heidi! It could be a misty rainy day or it could be flowers under the midnight moon! In fact, you might want to amend your post and join in the "Midnight" challenge at Addicted to CAS! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Oh, Heidi, I love how you've used this beautiful camellia image against this gorgeous background that is so dramatic. I love how you've sprinkled water on it to make it "rain" on your flowers. We've been getting a lot of rain ourselves, so I hope the flowers love it! Beautifully done, sweet friend, and I love how you've finished it with the sequins. Hugs!
