Beautiful You

Good morning.
Playing with this beautiful set from STAMPlorations and one of the circle masks from A Colorful Life Designs to create a simple card.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and positioned the circle mask in the very center of my card front.  I rubbed some Peacock Feathers DOX ink to fill the circle space.  I moved the mask and repeated that process with some Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans, overlapping the circles.
I splattered the circles with water to lift some of the ink and to give a lovely rainy look.
Next, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the flowers and the sentiment using some Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  I splattered with some black acrylic paint then I mounted it onto a piece of blue cardstock and onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
