Floral notes (by Miranda)

Hello there,

Today my 2nd blogpost as guest designer for CB........
Today I have played with another favorite of mine(there are quit a lot LOL) from the beautiful CB stamps. I like the stylish designs of Sue, they are so elegant and crisp!
This is the Floral Notes sheet and the word is from the Artistic Expressions. In the background I have used the lovely background stamp from the Dusky Damask set.

I had this inky background in my stash for quit a while and I don't remember exactly what I did use.......I am certain that is was done using water reactive inks and a lot of water.....than some sparkly spatters but you can't see it very good on the photo's. 

I have used Memento inks to stamp the flowers. I like to stamp in colors so there are no hard outlines.
Than I have colored them using color pencils.....also one of my favorite techniques. Some beautiful music in the background and I had the house for myself so that is a bit of quality time!

Here some close-ups........hear you can see a bit of the sparkles on the left side......

Hope you did enjoy my take on the Floral notes. I enjoyed reading your comments last time and I did try several times to leave a comment but it wouldn't work so I will do it here.
Always appreciate that!
Hope to see you next week for my last post this time,

Have a lovely day,
