Vintaged Serenity

I've been fighting off a migraine all day today (Wednesday), and I just started playing with papers and layouts to see what I could come up with. I didn't have the right color of flowers, so I sprayed some plain white flowers with Cherry Blossom Walnut Ink spray (available in the Cornish Heritage Farms store - click here). I sprayed lightly for the pink flower, and I sprayed heavily for a complete saturation of color on the smaller darker flower. Then I wanted to "vintage" them so I sponged some brown ink over the sprayed flowers.

I sympathize with the migraines as I used to suffer from them for years. But despite that you have put together a stunning card. You are very talented.

How cool is that how you tucked the brown layer behind the dp and your pink flowers are gorgeous!!!!
