The "Dribbles Of Ink" Card

Hi folks, I'm sharing the third card in my Distress Oxide Spray adventure using up the dribbles of ink left on the Flourish Stencil from the cards I've already shared to create the background.

After spraying through the stencil for Wednesday's card and flipping it over and monoprinting on yesterday's card, there were just dribbles of ink left on the stencil
So I spritzed it lightly with water and managed to get another background.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 1 from Distress Watercolor Card and coloured with Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Iced Spruce and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks using Distress Blender Brushes.
I inked the sentiment from Parental Props with Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink, stamped on the Distress Oxide Sprays border and fussy cut in a pot shape.
I painted the centre of the flowers with Distress Collage Medium Matte and sprinkled with Distress Rock Candy Glitter. I fixed the flowers and pot in place with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create dimension.
I matted the panel on to Classic Kraft Stock and fixed to a 5" x 7" White Card Blank
 and added a twine bow
 three backgrounds from one spray of each colour ain't bad
and three cards speaks to the thrifty Scot in me.
Have a great weekend whatever you are planning, weather permitting I'm hoping to spend it in the garden and I'll see you on Monday to share my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Happy Crafting
