One stamp set, three designs.

Good afternoon all and thanks for joining me. 
Today I have been having a play with a fabulous set of Stamps, 
Wildflowers, by Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz.

They are available from Craft Stash 

This is a quick and easy design .

I started by brushing some distress ink over a moon mask..
I used Picked Respberry and added a little 
Midnight blue Artistry ink. 

Next I flicked some seedless preserves ink and water.

Followed by some stamping using black Archival ink .

And a black sharpie line .

The sentiment and butterfly are from The summer blooms stamp set (it was sat on my desk )

Finally I added some stickles glitter glue. 

My second card is completely different .

This started off with distress Oxide ink and water .

I added the colours one at a time .

Drying the card each time , before adding the next colour. 

Followed by some water spritzing 

I then added a moon mask and some black soot distress ink 

This created my landscape. 

Next I added some wild flowers .

A sentiment and a couple of butterflies .

The finishing touch was some white dots with my Posca marker .

My third card is something I just made up today..
I do like to just play and so something a bit different .

I just felt like a change of colour ..
I know purple is the on trend colour but you know me 
And orange will always be my favourite 

I started with a circle die cut , 

Blended some orange and pink distress ink then flicked some water .

And stamped one of the wild flowers. 

On a separate piece of card I restamped the wild flower .

Then my next layer I blended the same inks and added more water spritzing .

I matted and layered the designs...
Now this is what I had,,,
But I didn’t want to stop here ..nice as it is..
So I added the decorated die cut 

Now that looks more designer...hope you agree...
The dots are glossy Accents...
and they will dry to a clear glaze . 
I do hope you like what I have created today..
I have certainly had a lovely time.
