Cool Blues

I was playing around with gesso & distress inks recently & made up a few backgrounds. I thought the subtle tones would work perfectly with this new stamp & I have also finally treated myself to the Stazon Teal Blue ink pad. I have adored this colour like, forever! Stamped in this colour, the image looks like a botanical plate. Inks used for the background, Ranger distress, Broken China, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans. Stamps a mix of Crafty Individuals & Studio G. I stamped the images in the distress inks & rubbed with a dry cloth to blur them.
