In creating these two cards, I was inspired by the beautiful flowers of summer–trying to enjoy them just a little bit longer before the weather gets crisp and the leaves start to fall.  To create each card, I stamped my Penny Black floral images onto watercolor paper using Watering Can ink.  I then colored them using Distress Markers, adding water to blend. For subtle background stamping, I inked Penny Black Footnotes using Tree Branch ink, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping.  After piercing the square background, I also added Distress Markers blended with water to give the background a bit of a vintage look while also keeping things light and fresh.



Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Jill for providing such fabulous inspiration!
