A Little Love

I am so in love with this particular flower stamp set from Alternew.
 I also love finding more ways to use it.  For this card, the style is pretty casual as far as not really defining each flower, just making all the flowers and leaves and colors just flow together.  I also made it fit the Sketch Saturday since I also love my banner dies from My Favorite Things.  
 I just stamped the outline of the flowers and the leaves on watercolor paper with black ink, embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I like to emboss the black stamped images because it adds definition to the black and makes the ink stable for adding more colors.  I then added color with Distress Stains.  Nothing was exact, I just let the inks and colors flow.  
 Here is the Sketch Saturday.
It also fits the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge because it is Anything Goes.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
