Well despite the awful wet weather here I have managed to put a little bit of spring into my day with a gorgeous floral stamp from Stamp Addicts. I made a couple of very different cards using the same stamp. For the first I coloured some card using Distress inks swiped onto a craft mat and spritzed with water. Then stamped with Black Archival Ink. I've painted round the image with my water brush and added white highlights - which I think look awful on the photo but are much more subtle IRL, think they've been highlighted even more by the camera.
The background is embossing resist using a Judikins Italian script stamp and Distress inks, and some die cut flourishes then I layered the floral panel edged it with gold wax, added some Kraft photo corners (also with touches of gold wax) and added an embossed greeting.

The next card is very different - same stamp, masked and stamped three times and coloured with pro-markers. I've added touches of glossy accents for some shiny texture which doesn't really show on the pic (doing well with my poor photo skills today!) and a bit of bling in the corners.
So it may be pouring with rain outside but I have a spring garden to enjoy anyway !
