An Abundance Of Flowers


There's an abundance of flower challenges this week, so I thought I'd slosh some Distress Inks across some flower images.  The image is from Penny Black 3817K Tigress (discontinued, I think) and the sentiment is from 30-103 Wishes.  Bit of sloshing, bit of splatting, done!

I'm entering it into:

Less is More: Flowers
The Paper Players: CAS Floral
Fusion: photo inspiration
One Layer Simplicity: Fabulous Flowers and
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Botanical

I've had my head down for the last couple of weeks (you'll see why tomorrow) but I'm looking forward to catching up with you all soon :)

ETA: Im also linking up to CASology: Flower.  Thanks for the prompt, Ardyth!
