Stamps and Distressing

Good afternoon. 
Just because we are blog hopping it doesn't mean that normal service over at STAMPlorations has been suspended! So as it is the first Friday in the month it means a new challenge!
Here is my card -


giving inspiration for the theme of -


I'm not big on the distressing but I used DI to colour and the greeting from the Blossom Overture set is a little distressed!
The flowers are on the latest Stamp Club set  The Birds and The Blooms which I stamped and masked before printing over the top with a large  acrylic block with lemon and green DIs spritzed with a little water. I die cut the raised panel using my MFT pierced rectangle stax dies and popped it up.

Now it's over to you, as usual Shery is offering fantastic prizes, you don't even have to use STAMploration stamps to join in, we'd like it if you did though!

  7. Thank you so much for joining us over at CASology this week! This is a stunning layout for a card, and certainly an idea I am going to CASE. Like your little explosions of subtle colour in contrast to your uncoloured outline stamps. Very pretty!
