Happy Hibiscus



A card without splatter - whatever next?  I'm playing along with Muse, where Vicki has provided this fabulous inspiration card:


And it ties in nicely with the current challenge at Fusion.  Look at that fabulous rose garland!


Here's what I came up with:


I inked the Penny Black Hibiscus stamp up with a mixture of Memento and Distress Inks and stamped the images onto the card, then overstamped with the sentiment (Papertrey Wet Paint).  Tied a ribbon bow around the panel, matted and mounted - done!
