HLS Mixed Media April

Do pop over to Happy Little Stampers to see the fabulous inspiration for this Challenge!

Today I have a card to show you...

I started with a green card base and then added my background - a piece of water colour paper wth distress ink applied and then sprayed with water through a stencil. I added distress ink ( Picked Raspberry) around the edges and then overstamped using my Stampin Up Double stamping tulip stamp in black and raspberry. 
Finally I added happiness - also Stampin Up - in the raspberry distress ink.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Ooooo, love this card, Susan. Beautifully soft and pretty background. I really like the result you got by spraying water onto you distress ink background. Such a pretty tulip too. Happiness is the perfect sentiment for this. :)

  2. Fantastic watercolor background.
    The tulip looks great.
    Have to get that stamp out and
    use it. Love layered stamps.
    thanks for sharing.

  3. I love distress ink backgrounds. The sentiment is very nice.
