Something i wanted to do, just for the sake of it

I am sure a lot of you would agree that sometimes its just nice to make something because you want to, not for any reason, not to use for gallery or demo. just for me.
well that was me this evening. had some fun with some lovely stamps and inks

I started with a  square card. covered the  card in a light turquoise leaving a little cream edge.
On a basic grey pale pink paper ( cut to mat over the light turquoise ) i inked edges with distressed ink, milled lavender & leave to dry.
meanwhile i stamped a paper artsy 'angel' in brown and embossed with a sugar plum embossing powder, i also stamped and embossed in brown ink on the pale pink basic grey paper, the two flowers from the stampers anonymous stamps above.
before matting on the angel, i stamped down the side with the checked border from the stamp set with soft blue and embossed with clear ink. then inked over it with the milled lavender and some soft brown and as it was stamped and embossed it resisted most of it :-)
, also used soft brown around the edges of card to soften the light turquoise card.
the flowers cut out and layered, lightly inked in brown and light turquoise also.
the centre of the flower was stamped onto brown card and cut out.

i also made the card below with the same technique. this one was inspired by one in the craft stamper a while ago by Paula Tidman
