BasicGrey Challenge wk. 3

Afternoon peeps this is the card I made for the BasicGrey Challenge wk 3 which this wk. is Inspiration Challenge so tried out my new In Bloom stamps from Papertrey ink.. they come in a set & I used the masking technique & stamped a number of images to layer them in decoupage style.... I had a few probs (as per usual ) so split up the flowers & gave up on the ribbon....but after sleeping on it & after I had finished the card I could have got a ribbon on... the greeting comes in the set too...The retro flower looks very dark nearly black in the piccy but it is a dark purple IRL have sprayed with Pearl glimmer mist.... Its been a lovely sunny day on the north east coast hope you had some sunshine too... what I used
Image ..papertrey ink stamp set in Bloom..
Mediums.. Prisma pencils & pearl glimmer mist spray..
DP's.. BasicGrey Wisteria pad..
Tools.. Retro punches..MS punch on the flower petals..L-em ash branch punch..
