I've seen the gals stamp distress inks onto a stamp block (for clear stamps), spritz it with water and use the special little tool with the felt pad to swirl them together onto the paper. I dry embossed white cardstock to give it a little texture then combined 2 shades of green and one blue...Not too bad for a first time, whatcha think? For the flower I used pencils and gamsol...I heart that effect!
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!
