DS4J challenge 94 Flowers

It's a happy theme today at Digistamps4Joy and we ask you to pick some of your favourite flower images and embellishments!!

I used the DS4J image "Tag 1" to make the focal layer of my card:
I first coloured the flowers with white wax crayon and then rubbed distress ink (mustard seed) all over. Take a tissue and then just rub lightly over the wax again to remove any ink residue. I haven't done this technique in so long and I it's definitely going to pop up a lot more.

Background stamped with Unity Kits November 2013 & January 2014
Sentiment: Unity's itty bitty "A lovely butterfly day"

  1. Riette this is so creative. Love how you left the flowers uncoloured which makes it pop against the yellow design. Pragtig.
