Just a beautiful day

I have a card to share which I made during the week for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes challenge. The flowers and leaves were coloured (wet on wet) with Altenew inks on watercolour paper and then fussy cut. The background was created with some splashes of the same inks and then a stencil was applied over the top with texture paste. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials
Stamps - Altenew Beautiful Day and sentiment from Floral Garden
Inks - Altenew
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles
Others - Tim Holtz Gothic Stencil, Ranger Texture Paste
