Inspiration for Crafter's Corner # 6 - Stamping! :)

Hi friends,
Its a new month and  we at Crafter's Corner have a new challenge for you this month and its all about 'Stamping'....So here's my card based on this theme ...I decided to play with my new Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanicals set which I had  purchased few months back ....But never got to use it properly...So with my thinking cap on this is what I came up with :-

The small flowers & the leaves are stamped & colored with Distress Inks using the Koi Water Brush I had got from Crafter's Corner...I just never realised how easy it was to color with these water brushes...Saves a lot of time too! ....I really enjoyed coloring with Distress inks...They are so vibrant & they react very well with water...And when they dry the effect that they give is always beautiful...The above panel of my card is created by stamping the large leaf stamp from the Blissful Botanicls set... !!

Supplies Used :-
Base CS -Campap
Chevron PP -MME Sweetest Thing Tangerine (Crafter's Corner)
Yellow Prima flower -Crafter's Corner
Border Punches :
MS Daisy for sentiment tag
MS Doily Lace punch
Stamps :
Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanicals (Bought from Lulupu)
Coloring done with Distress inks -Fired Brick ,Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed ,Tumbled Glass, Shubby Shutters and Ripe Persimmon - (All from Crafter's corner)

Koi water brush -(Crafter's Corner )
Challenges Entered :-
Stamp 'n' doodle -Use 2 different  punches /dies - I have used two MS border punches
