Tuesday Talk

I have a pretty little card using my favourite Uniko stamps to share with you today. Here's the challenges I think it meets the criteria for:

And here's the card:

I started by inking directly from the pad through a circle stencil and then added a little more of each colour using a brush to get that fade out look.

I then stamped the bloom and sentiment using the misti tool to get a good deep colour.

Stamps: Uniko, Paradise
Inks: Ranger distress , mustard seed, spiced marmalde, picked raspberry; Memento, tuxedo black

Thanks for your visit today, I do appreciate you taking the time.  And keep crafting!
