Pastel Flowers

I have two cards to share today...featuring a couple of floral Hero Arts stamps...'Garden Bouquet' and 'Blooming Meadows'. I stamped the images using the watercolour technique and Distress Inks (Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky, Victorian Velvet & Scattered Straw). I added sentiments from a set that was a magazine freebie (stamped in Versafine 'Smokey Gray' ink). I distressed the top and bottom edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, before adding the panels to my kraft card blanks.

I've always loved those stamps, Helen - wonderful to see them again, and they are the perfect size for a nice sentiment to be added without taking away from the design! Thank you for sharing these with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Very delicate result and the grey for the words is so much better than black in this case.
