Good morning everyone, 
How are you today ? 
Wow , it is very cold and icy here today. 
Karl is away at the moment , and I have been on grandma duties plus walking Eric this morning.
I can’t believe I have done 9959 steps already,,,
I definitely deserve an extra coffee today,,,

I have another sample to share with you using stamps designed by Tracy Evans.

As you know I love floral designs.
I decided to create a vintage feel to this sample. 

I started by stamping the dandelion stamp, and adding some colour .
I just used my inks and some water. 

Now this masking technique is such an old one, but I have put my twist on it by tearing the edges of my mask. 
Notice the arrow on my script stamp…
Just stops me stamping it upside down.

Next I added some deeper ink  around the edges to frame the design 

To add to the vintage feel I used my water spray lid to add some rings, and then added some water splats, followed by 
White posca pen splats. 

I love the  plant label stamp, I added some  garden string to this. 
I also added a little metal ring and some glossy accents, (you know how I love to add these 
finishing touches ) 
In my metal embellishments box I found a little watering can. 
So I added that too 
Here is a closer look at the finished design. 

Thanks so much for popping in. 
See you again soon 

Love and hugs 
Jo xxxx
