Pretty Pastel Sunset- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning
A new month means a new fun theme at 

This month, we are also happy to be giving away a lovely stamp set from Uniko.
We are also welcoming our Guest Designer Michelle Lupton.

So onto my card details.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and my Distress Oxide inks.  I sponged on some Cracked Pistachio along the bottom edge using a blender brush. Next, I sponged on some Spun Sugar with a hint of Picked Raspberry, then Tumbled Glass and finally some Shaded Lilac.  When the inks were all dry, I placed it into my Misti and stamped the flowers along the bottom edge and heat embossed with some clear powder.  I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black the same way.
I splattered the background with water to remove some of the ink then added some splatters with black acrylic paint for added interest.  
I mounted the piece onto some pink cardstock then onto a plain white card base.

I hope you get a chance to check out what our talented DT's have created and hope you will come and play along with us!!
