Spicing up some hanging flowers

I have been playing with Distress inks and making backgrounds- this one is from Splitcoaststampers Water Stamping tutorial (Try that Technique).  It screamed flowers to me- and the Flower soft was sitting there on my desk......  I added Creative Inspiration Paints to the roping and the leaves- a perfect and subtle look to make the card look more elegant.

Here is a close up of the glimmer:

 I added some sponging to the edge of the Spellbinders die cut  (Technique Junkies Wisped Frame). 

 The background I made was inspired by the Try that Technique from Splitcoaststampers- water stamping. Here are pictures of the background on Whisper White and Georgia Pacific- the cardstock makes a huge difference.

On the left is Georgia Pacific and on the right is Whisper White.

Here are the backgrounds with waterstamping and the image stamped on the backgrounds.
 Stamp is from I Brake for Stamps- Embossing Arts line.
The Distress Inks used: Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Stormy Sky

Here is another card I made with the 'other' background:


Thanks for stopping by today!

What a great use of Flower Soft! Your experiment went strongly in favor of the Georgia Pacific, it seems.
