Les Fleurs

A little floral creation using the fabulous Eco Green Garden Chic stamp set (made entirely from recycled rubber) from Creative Expressions.
I stamped my image onto paper with coffee Archival Ink and tore into random strips and added to my background and coloured with Distress Inks wild honey and worn lipstick.
My main panel was stamped onto white card with Archival Ink and sponged with Distress Inks to match my background and matted onto a piece of brown card. I punched small squares from white card and added part of my image to each square giving dimension to my piece and added the sentiment in the bottom corner, sponging the edges with Distress Ink.
I also added a punched square to the corner of my panel to add yet more interest.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
