Too bright? The image is one of Annabelle Stamps from a set called Sentimental Bluebells but my flowers are pink because I know they come in different colours, I grow them in my garden! I used Distressed Inks - Scattered Straw, Faded Jeans and Forest Moss sponged onto the stamp to stamp it, and the sentiment (same set) is just stamped in Faded Jeans. I used Rangers Raspberry alcohol ink to make the middle background and then picked up some of this colour from the sponge with a paper Stix and used that to put some colour into the bells. Card is SU Whisper White and the ribbon is from the stash.
Now the other experiments:
This is the mask and the various sprays used to colour the paper
The one below used some of the Distressed inks I have
Then I tried chalks (below)
And then I gave it a go with the brayer and SU ink
Haven't done anything with them yet -still cogitating!
