For this simple card, I will be stamping the Floret image on a piece of Mixed Media cardstock for my card front. I inked directly onto the stamp with Evergreen Bough, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, and Pumice Stone. One hint is to always finish with the color you started with. I find that when I am inking in layers, the first color to go on gets covered up by the others so I like to finish with it to bring it to the top. Once the surface is inked well, spray with water in a light mist to hydrate the ink.
Ink the edges with Distress ink to bring a warmth to the card front.
I made a mix of Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold and water with my paint brush, then painted the leaves to give them a shimmery look.
now carry on,
