Spots , splashes and Dots

Hello, it's time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time it's 'Spots, Splashes and Dots'
My flower, from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden set was stamped onto water colour paper with black Archival ink and heat set with clear EP and coloured with Distress inks, I also used a very watery wash to shade the background.  The base layer is wrinkle free distress, some watery splashes and stenciled dots.  (My card looks very dark in the photo, but then I do think purple is hard to photograph.)
The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.

Thanks for your visit,
Avril xx

I love this flower stamp set, I've only managed to play with once so far but have the feeling it'll be used over and over. It's a set perfect for any style, from vintage to CAS. Lovely colors.

Di I get lost in the mail - where have I been. I admit to having some surgery last Wednesday and fell behind in by blog watching! I love this flower - guess I have found something else I want. Oh woe is me!!
I am not sure I know what the technique you used is. Your background looks pretty snazzy too!
