This was an experimental background I did with a shimmer texture paste through a stencil, which after allowing to dry, I sprayed a shimmer blue dye ink over. I sponged the edges with sepia ink before assembling my card layers. The stamps are from the ‘Retro Beach’ stamp set by Rubber Dance co.

Misty Floral

This card was inspired by a t-shirt I saw a lady wearing ages ago. Unfortunately I didn’t have my phone on me at the time so couldn’t take a photo, so have had to rely on my unreliable memory.

The flower images are from the “Bird Blossom” cling stamp set by Stampendous CRS5083 and wording is “She” set DD-1205A by Unity Stamp Company. I sponged 2/3 of card with Antique Linen Distress pad around flowers and spritzed top flower with “Perfect Pearl” Perfect Pearl Mist.
