This card came together by accident.  I had stamped a small square image and embossed it so I could sponge in some colour after the embossing.  Once I had done that I decided to mask an area on the card base to make a frame; that is the blue square you see on the card.  When I positioned the square image on the blue sponged area it did not look any good so I  just started experimenting, adding sponging all over the card.  I added some artichoke sponging and some ink splatters and it began to look  like I could make something out of it.  I added the  flowers and then did some spattering with water which disperses the ink creating little watermarks.  The watermarks are my favourite part of the card.  I added a sentiment and ended up quite happy with the card which was nothing like what I had imagined.  If you click on the image you can see the watermark effect more clearly.

Thanks for dropping by,  I am enjoying having time to stamp and browse other people’s  blogs again.
