Simon Says - Thinking Of You

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created a card to send to a friend to let her know she is in my thoughts and, as if I needed an excuse, I couldn't resist having a play with the delicious and devilish Villainous Potion, the latest colour to join the Distress Family.

I smooshed my favourite Custom Ink blend pad for creating neutral backgrounds (Antique Linen/Old Paper Distress and Speckled Egg/Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Re-inkers) and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink pad on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and laid a 5.1/4" square panel of Distress Watercolor card into the ink, dried, tapped back into the inks to pick up the remaining droplets and repeated, drying between layers, until I was happy with the background. 
I used the smallest of the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Shifter Multi Harlequin Layering Stencils with Bundled Sage and Forest Moss Distress Oxide inks to add interest to the background.
I inked one of the images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Faded Type with Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink, held the stamp in my hand and stamped randomly over the background.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Festive Bouquet Thinlits from backgrounds I had created previously using Villainous Potion, Fossilized Amber, Bundled Sage and Forest Moss Distress Oxide inks.
I assembled the flowers and leaves following the indented marks left on the card by the dies and used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Shaping Kit to curl the petals and leaves.
I fixed my bouquet to the panel using Distress Collage Medium, die-cut the sentiment using Simon Says Script Hello Shadow die and added the word Friend, trimmed from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Sentiment Label Stickers.
I inked around the edges of the panel with Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink and matted the panel on to a 5.1/2" square white card blank.
