To Be Enjoyed

Today was such an enjoyed day!!  I went to Scrapfest in Kitchener with a friend and it was great to meet up with fellow stampers there.  I picked up a few more stencils...(it's all your fault Virginia Lu!! happy I bumped into her) and some other crafting goodies to play with.  When I got home, I was inspired by this challenge at Splitcoast.  Here is the inspiration photo from the AIGA Design site:  

I started my card by stenciling the background with a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.  The stencil is filled with inspiring words and I love the font.  I inked it up with Peeled Paint Distress inks then splattered some water onto the ink to add some depth.  When that was dry, I stamped the flowers, added the sentiment and then lastly, the splatters of black for interest.  

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Virginia's View- #2 STENCIL

CASology- #90 WET (I added water and wet paint)

Allsorts Challenge- SPRING FLOWERS

Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Unity, Mama Elephant/ stencil/ Distress ink/ inking tool/ bl Memento ink
