This card was an easy and quick one to make. I already had the ink "smooched" background from a previous project. So then all I had to do was stamp the sentiment and brushstroke flowers using my Tonic Stamp Platform. I stamped the flowers (Penny Black Blossom Branch) using Spun Sugar and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I wanted to keep the flowers in the background to fit our theme better, so I didn't bother inking it up again, although it might have been a good idea to do so and could have easily be done with my Stamp Platform. But by the time I noticed it that it needed re-stamped, I had already removed the card. (I really need go get some re-inkers then this wouldn't have happened!! Or I should have I used my Distress Markers instead!)
The sentiment from the Penny Black set Happy Wishes was stamped using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I love the crips impression this ink gives. The script background stamp I used with Spun Sugar ink is an oldie but goodie from stampin Up - French Script. I carried this script over onto the card base. Before adhering the image panel onto the card base I inked up the edges with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink and distressed the edges.
