This is one stamp I will probably be never tired of. It is so beautiful and there're endless opportunities to us it.
I was inspired by Shari Caroll's card. She does magic with distress inks. What I like about playing with inks is that you never know what the final result will be. I started with a rectangle of eggshell watercolor paper with an embossed image. I applied two distress inks (Mustard Seed and Faded Jeans) on the acrylic block and sprayed generously with water. Then I placed my paper face down on the block and let it dry and repeated till I was satisfied with the rich colors of the background. I colored the flower with the leftover mixture of Mustard Seed and Faded Jeans using a thin brush. After the inks dried up I embossed the Happy birthday sentiment (Friends are treasures by HA) in gold and finished the card.
