JOFY Bouquet


This is my third offering for Paper Artsy this week (they'll be thinking I'm stalking them).  This card was inspired by Jan McGregor's card using JOFY stamps, and I've not played with my JOFY stamps for a while so I thought I'd join in.


I'm using the colours from ColourQ as a guide.

My background is made from Mowed Lawn and Broken China Distress Paints, with a swipe of Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top.  The Picket Fence was originally through a stencil, but it was too wet and mushy and leaked under the stencil so I swooshed it over the panel with my fingers.  The stencil had loads of Distress Stain on it so I used it as a stamp instead.  The flowers are watercoloured with Distress Inks.   I added some Frantage embossing powder, Stickles and a hand-written sentiment, and drew a border with marker pen and Signo pen.

I've added a bow, so I can play along with Keep It Simple:

Also, don't forget about the new Mixed Media Card Challenge here :)
