Moment by Moment

Good Morning
Meet today's card. 
I haven't done a collage style card in awhile so today was the day.

Here's what I did to create my card.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and placed the Deckled Rectangle mask over it.  This mask gives a nice torn edge without me having to tear paper and stick it down. 
Using my Tombow markers, I coloured directly onto the Beaux Iris flower stamp, sprayed with water and stamped. I wanted the flower to be the focal point in the center of my card.  Next, using a variety of stamps, I proceed to fill in the background using the same technique using different coloured markers.  When I was happy with the layout, I sponged in the border using some Barn Door DOX ink.
I simply mounted that onto a piece of coordinating coloured cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
