Everybody Art Challenges 42

My second card of the day is for this weeks Everybody Art Challenge which is an absolutely lovely sketch by Iris. Now I know everybody sees things differently, but I loved this immediately and saw vintage.

So I followed that thought and used Daisy Bucket papers which lend thyself to this feel, distressed the edges with Tim Holz brushed corduroy and stamped a block of four inchie stamps from Inkadinkado 98852 using versafine sepia and detail copper embossing powder. I so like this set which are all spring and botanical images, very me. At the weekend I tea dyed some Hero flowers ........ I obviously felt vintage coming on and have used a couple of these plus some gems and a strip punched on the fiskars punch ........ I know, it's getting repetitive, but in the absence of the long overdue delivery of Martha Stewart punches, the options are limited.

Oh my word Brenda this is stunning I love everything about this one most of all the colour and layout and those little stamps just give that finishing touch. I love the technique you have used around the edges of the paper as well I have tried this a few times but it never worked well for me lol.
