Blue Blocking


Hi there.  Here is a card I made for the CAS challenge today at Splitcoast; based on a sketch.  I was playing with my distress inks again and created the bkg. by inking up my acrylic block with blues, spraying with water and randomly stamped it being sure to overlap areas...re-inked it every time.  I added a swipe with my ink pad directly to my card front, mounted the flowers and added the sentiment.
I am also adding my card to the challenge at Moxie Fab; Create Your Own Background Paper.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Stampin Up, Studio G/ Distress ink/ eb powder/ pop dots/ acrylic block
