AAA Cards - Springtime

 The perfect AAA Cards challenge, spring time flowers! 
 And I used a brand new set of flowers stamps to me from Alternew.  After I stamped the flowers and leaves with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder, I colored the entire front of my card with Distress Stains.  
Because the Distress Stains have a dabber top, it is very easy to apply ink to specific areas so I used them to "paint" the flowers and to create the background on watercolor paper.  I used a stencil to add a little scattering of silver dots with embossing paste. 
Be sure to play along at AAA Cards.
It also fits the Colour Q challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
