Let me show you my Fourth Inspiration card for September 2016...
Its been a while since I did some inking, so this one is for my love towards inked backgrounds :) To make this card, I inked the panel with some distress ink, spritz some water over it. then I stamped the leaves and texts in darker shades of green. I also stamped, fuzzy cut and water colored the flowers and stuck these with some foam adhesives on the panel. I have used Floral Bliss, Mixed Media Elements, Trendy leaves and Fond expressions - 2
