Purple Cone Flower Sympathy Card

Today's card is based on the colors in the Altenew Inspiration Challenge.

I used the raspberry, green and yellow tones from the Altenew inspiration photo:

Since I don't own any Altenew stamps yet, I used the Penny Black Petal Power Stamp and greeting from the Eloquence set.

I first stamped the stem and leaves using my MISTI and Peeled Paint distress ink, stamping several times to get good coverage and spritzing the stamp.  When the leaves were dry, I then stamped the flower heads using Picked Raspberry and Vintage Photo distress inks and spritzing them with water as well.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
