Eclectic Stems for AALL & Create

Hello Friends

Just a quick post from me today to share my GDT post for AALL & Create.  I needed to
create a birthday card for a friend,
I used AALL & Create stamp sets #199 and #210, both by Tracy Evans.
I created a background using Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Gathered Twigs.
Next I cut a circle from card, placed the outer part on the background and stamped through the hole using stamp set #210 (Background Mash Up) using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I stamped out the flower again, coloured two with Distress Ink and cut these out to use as
 extra layers.
I went around the finished circle with a wet paintbrush to drag some of the colour out.  To finish off I layered the flower up and added some glitter to the centre of the flower.
The sentiment on the finished card is also from stamp set #199.

Thanks so much for your visit, as always, I appreciate it very much.

Hugs, Anne xxx
