I started by puttings drops of Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters and Bundled Sage re-inkers on my craft sheet and then spritzed it with water (this seems to be my favourite technique at the moment!) Then I stamped with Archival Olive ink using the Wendy Vecchi 'Art from the Heart' stamp set. The sentiment is from the 'Be Happy...Make Art' set. The butterfly is from an Inkadinkado stamp set.
The tulip is stamped onto Grunge Paper that I've blended Forest Moss and Wild Honey DI over. The Tim Holtz Mini Flourish is also cut from Grunge Paper and I've used Wild Honey Distress Stains on it. I stamped the head of the tulip onto some shrink plastic, punched a hole then shrunk it ! The ribbon is seam binding that has been coloured using Forest Moss and Wild Honey Distress Stains. The eagle eyed among you will have spotted a 'splodge' on the right hand side - lesson that was learnt is don't use Red Pepper alcohol ink on another project next to your finished projects !
EDIT: Unfortunately the weather has taken a turn for the worse today, here on the Isle of Skye, but lucky for me the cottage we're staying in has Wi-Fi so I'm taking the opportunity to enter a few challenges ! I'm entering this project into the following challenges:
