Polkadoodles flower card


                         I created this card using stamps from Polkadoodles and Distress oxides. 
The background was created by spreading ink onto a mat spraying it with water and pressing card into the ink. I stamped over this with archival ink and coloured the images with more ink.

The Artistic Stamper - February challenge Roses are Red

 This months challenge on The Artistic Stampers Creative team blog is 

Roses are Red

I created some paper flowers for this challenge using Distress Oxides, stamps, and a mask. 
pop over to the team blog to enter the challenge and see the make from my teammates. I hope we have inspired you to join in.

 I decorated a sheet of A3 card by spreading Distress Oxides onto my glass mat and adding water. Then I pressed my card into the ink, layering up ink until I was happy with its appearance. Once that was dry I continued to add layers with Distress Oxides by applying it through a mask and stamping with it. I then die cut lots of petals which I shaped and glued onto skewers to form flowers.

 Thank you for popping by my blog.
 please leave me a comment. what do you think about paper flowers?
