Sweet Wishes

I decided to try out using distress ink to colour in stamped images and for a softer look stamped the image in brown rather than black.  I was really please with the way this came out and have a feelign that this may be my colouring method of choice for a while.

The large flower and the bud started out as a large rose which I pulled apart and added some stamens the the largest three layers.
