Miss Austen

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you today? 

I had a wonderful messy day yesterday, gradually sorting out my to do list which seems to be getting longer and longer!

Today my card is made using IndigoBlu's Miss Austen stamp.

Step by Step

1. A5 white landscape card.
2. First layer is stamping card which I have stamped the flowers with Versafine vintage sepia and embossed with WOW clear embossing powder, I then distressed with DI tea dye. I then painted the flowers with IndigoBlu acrylic paint townhouse teal.
3. I stamped the image with Versafine vintage sepia, embossed with WOW clear embossing powder, painted around the image and the flowers in the image before matting and layering onto Kraft card which was distressed with DI ground espresso.
4. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine, embossed then distressed with DI tea die, adhered to card with foam pads.
5. To finish off I stamped the flower 3 times with Versafine, painted with teal paint and adhered with Pinflair.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
