I love the way in which Distress inks blend. However, my flowers blended a little too well, as I stamped the second colour while the first was still very wet, resulting in very little definition between them. I restamped the darker colour and used a watercolour brush to aid the process. The stems underwent the same procedure minus the restamping and the background square was doodled with a watercolour brush.
I added some Wink of Stella to the flower sentiments and stamped the sentiment in Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black.
This is a special birthday card for my Auntie Pauline. I've posted it a little early, but as she doesn't have an internet connection, I'm pretty certain it will remain a surprise until the postman delivers it! Hopefully this will bring a little brightness and beauty to the still dull February days!
