Perfectly Rustic Inspiration

Perfectly Rustics brand new challenge today is an inspiration challenge. What I saw was masses of flowers in reds,blues, purples and yellows, so I decided to do a simple one layer card with lots of flowers.

Card Tip:

I was missing the right ink colour in distress inks to get the colour I wanted, so I mixed a light distress ink with a dark memento ink and got the perfect colour. Don't be afraid to mix your inks even if they are different types.

Card Ingredients:

Card Stock:
white card stock for the base (A4 sheet cut in half)
Stamps:
Stampin Up flower shop and matching pansy punch, GinaKDesigns a year of flowers for sentiment, the flowerpot image is from my stash.
Ink:
Versamark ink and white embossing powder,Distress inks tumbled glass,dusty concord,wild honey,aged mahogany, tea dye,vintage photo, Memento paris dusk. The pot and stem and leaves were coloured with Derwent inktense pencils.
Dies:
Papertrey Ink angled labels die collection.
Other:
sequins,thin purple ribbon.
