Pretty poppies

The MFT pretty poppies stamp set is first MFT stamp set I bought and I have made cards using this stamp set here is one more card which I made for MFT card design superstar contest.
I used this stamp set first time with distress inks, yes the flowers are stamped with distress ink spun sugar. First stamped the image with spun sugar and with help of thin brush, water and picked raspberry distress ink I added more detail and depth to the flower. For the centre of the flowers I used vintage photo distress inks and for leaves and stem I used moved lawn. At bottom of the card I distressed the paper with antique linen and stamped the script image from the same stamp set in antique linen ink.

Happy crafting!!

Masculine cards

I made these cards for the MFT card design superstar contest.  I used MFT's trendy triangles stamp set  to create the background. I first stamped the images in distress inks and sprayed water on it the inks react and spread and get lighter in color.  I diecut a piece of white cardstock using MFT dienamics Inside & out diagonal stitched square and stamped the sentiment and a bow from MFT Terrific ties stamp set.

I so much loved the background that I ended up making another card using the same technique but used different colors this time. 

Let me know which one you liked the most :)
