DREAMS

I've been getting a little inky with Sam Poole's Art Sayings and Wendy Vecchi's Art Fit For A Queen and Love to Make Art stamp sets from Creative Expressions.
I stamped the background with the stripes from Wendy's set in coffee Archival Ink and then stamped the leaves with a VersaMark ink pad and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Wild honey and spiced marmalade ink was then blended over the embossed image which then resists the ink, something I love.
The fabulous bottle is one of Wendy Vecchi's Embellish Your Art embellishments which I coloured with Alcohol Ink. The fabulous sentiment is from Sam Poole's Art Sayings set which I also coloured with wild honey and spiced marmalade ink. I also added the white bird again from the Embellish Your Art range which I coloured with Distress Markers.
I stamped the flower with coffee Archival Ink and coloured with wild honey and spiced marmalade inks and then layered together to add dimension.  The leaves were stamped with peeled paint and pine needles ink and added to my flower stem.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Hi
I actually thought the leaves were stamped onto corrugated cardboard, that line stamp must be a useful stamp to have in your stash.
A great card with all your wonderful elements as always.
