Dainty flowers

Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #176.

For my card I sued the Paper Smooches die Dainty flowers. I adhered Stick-it to the back of the white ones, if I had thought ahead I would also have done that for the inserts...but cut them out with the Bigshot.

For the colors I used Distress inks (picked raspberry, spunsugar and squeezed lemonade) and just swiped the inkpads onto cardstock and then die cut those out as well.

Stuck the white borders onto the bardbase and inset all the coloured pieces, messed ou the yellow one with too much glue, tried to fix it with a damp cloth then and reaser, wasn't pretty ;-) But it actually looks worse on the picture than in real life phew...

Sentiment is from Craft Emotions (gefeliciteerd-nl) and I stamped it with Versafine black onyx.
I tried fossilized amber and mustard seed Distress inks too, but I found them too dark.
