Love these flowers

When it comes to flower stamps, Altenew are some of my most favorite.
 These flowers and leaves are from a new set that I received from them.  I wanted to play with the color combination at Sunday Stamps so this was the perfect start.  I stamped the flower with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.  The embossed lines of the images will now act as a resist to the inks I want to use. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. 
 I picked a variety of blues, grays and black Distress Stain.  I also used a Pewter which is actually a metallic silver.  When these were spritzed with water, they ran together just right to color the flowers and to add some color to the background.  In a way it is like painting, adding the colors here and there just where I wanted them. 

Here is the Sunday Stamps challenge
Plus it fits the Inkspirational Recipe challenge to use three items.  I used the Distressing, Flowers and Pearls since I used Liquid Pearls as accents. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
