Hello and Welcome.  As most of you already know, I love blue.  It seems to be my go-to colour when playing with inks and stamps.  I wanted to play along with the challenge at Splitcoast so I grabbed my stamps and ink and started creating. 
I began by stamping my background using a stamp from Impression Obsession.  It is part of their 'Cover a Card' series of stamps.  I inked it with various shades of Distress inks in blues, sprayed with water and stamped.  I love the impression that was left behind.
When that was dry, I stamped the flowers from Magenta and Unity with black Memento ink then added the sentiment from Penny Black.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Crafty Boots- FLOWERS
Stamp and Create- ANYTHING GOES
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Supplies:  stamps- Magenta, IO, Penny Black, Unity/ Distress inks/ Mini Mister/ Bl Memento ink
