Flowery Thinking of You

Quick post for today. I'm doing this way too late at night! :)

I made the background for this card by rubbing a cheap, multi-color ink pad directly over the cardstock a couple times. The stamps (flowers and sentiment) are both from a set from Inkadinkado. I matted with black and mounted on foam squares.

Edited to add: I forgot to say that I also added "speckles" with an old Stampin' Up! stamp from Itty Bitty Backgrounds - same as a couple days ago:)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Wow, that background is way cool! I think I've been seeing this multi-color ink pad swiping done a couple of times recently and I need to add it to my list of things to do. Really love the effect. Looks fabulous with the beautiful Inkadinkado stamps and the Itty Bitty speckles. Happy Easter weekend, Lynette!

Great way to use those ombre ink pads! I need to give that a try. I have that same Inkadinkadoo stamp set, so maybe I'll completely CASE your card. :)

Looks like a background that took a lot of supplies/colors and the swipping leaves a great texture!~

I, too, am impressed with the beautiful background! I need to look at the sets I have and get busy making backgrounds.
