Distressed Flowers


Today I would like to share a card I made  for the Claritystamp Challenge on Facebook, using up some of my backgrounds I have been making  so this was quick card to put together.
Background was made with Distress Inks and I also added some Ken Oliver Colour Burst and spritzed lightly.

Using Claritystamp stamps I stamped 3 times onto the dried background with shabby shutter distress ink for a muted image.  I married two stamps together as I wanted to use this pretty Lady's Mantel stamp and the stem from another.  Word stamp stamped onto same background cutout and Flakes applied to edges.......very sticky fingers..... 😊
Using flitter glue For the final image and Guilding Flakes I also dabbed glue randomly onto background and applied the Flakes.
This panel was mounted onto coordinations card which I sanded back, added to a Kraft card blank.

I would also like to add to the following challenges

Thanks for popping by 'till next time



  1. Absolutely beautiful, Maggie. As you know, I'm a sucker for meadow grasses, and the gilded look of this one over that fabulous background is just amazing. Thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey with this beauty.
