Aga, Day 3

Here's our next stunner by Aga: Aga's background on this card is a true beauty! I love watercolor effect and pretty stamping. The sentiment panel works perfectly with the background stamp. And how 'bout that bow? BEAUTIFUL!
Here's my take:
The red background was created by applying Fired Brick Distress Stain to my craft sheet and spritzing with water. Next I dipped the background paper into this ink. After it was dry, I applied Dusty Concord Distress Ink using an ink blending tool. The flower (Hero Arts CG303) was colored using Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Markers (coloring directly on the stamp) and then was lightly spritzed with water before stamping. After cutting out the flower I applied Walnut Stain Distress Ink to the edges. Sentiment by Hero Arts (CL490).

Thanks again for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments. I also wanted to mention that I am entering this card in my good friend Joy's fun challenge. Check it out HERE.
See you tomorrow!
