CRAZY FLORAL ADDICTION 3

Last one for today and you can check my other 2 Crazy Floral Posts here and here



As soon as I saw the photo inspiration at Muse this week I wanted to join in but have been struggling for time to get down to it and I'm now really cutting it fine to enter too!

I started by spreading distress inks straight from the ink pad to a scrap of cardstock in different colours then added water splashes and droplets to allow the colours to merge slightly.  I've used a chevron / zigzag die to cut strips of the inked card and also used it to make the leaves.

Card Recipe:
Image: Layered Prima flowers from my stash with a glittered brad from Stampin Up
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted
Dies: MFT Die-Namics - Chevrons & Marianne Creatables - Leaves

Challenges:
