Mother Nature's Son - Sunday Stamper

I actually had the idea for this card yesterday but didn't force myself off the sofa to make it. So when I saw Hels' Sunday Stamper theme this morning, it was ideal!!   The theme, taken from the Beatles song title - is Nature.
 I love these Paperartsy stamps!! I took a piece of white card and inked it using Mustard Seed DI. Stamped and masked the flowers and 3'd some of them for a bit of texture, as it was looking a bit flat.






Stamped the sentiment (from the same Paperartsy plate) and tore round it, added a dab of mustard seed and some walnut stain; and spritzed it with sunflower sparkle perfect pearls spray - I only have 4 of these yummy sprays so far, but this is a FAB colour and the level is going down in the bottle!!



I hope to get to be arty again today but Liverpool are playing at lunchtime and I also need to pop out and pick up my photos - I went to Kew yesterday morning - the daffodils are coming out and if it hadn't been so darned cold and cloudy - I could have fooled myself into thinking it was Spring!!
