Ink, Spray and Go

Morning...so happy you dropped in.  I just love this sentiment....so true.  I hope you are having a 'smiling' kind of day.  As most of you already know, I love going to Splitcoast Stampers in the morning and checking out the challenges there.  I find them inspiring and they help to get my creative juices flowing.  This morning at the Inspiration Challenge I saw this cute little hexagon pot of cactus from the Leif Shop and I was off to make a card.
 
I haven't made a card using the Embossing Folder Stamping Technique for a few weeks, so when I saw hexagons I thought of my folder right away.  I used Distress inks again to ink the background. 
When that was dry, I stamped the flowers from Magenta and Unity in black Memento ink.
 
I am also adding my card to these challenges:
 
 
Addicted to CAS- CELEBRATE
 
 
Mod Squad Challenge- SHADOW STAMPING
 
 
Thanks again for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamp- Magenta, Unity/ Memento ink/ Distress inks/ EB foler-SU/ Mini Mister/ pop dots
