Squirrely Challenge - TJ Technique/Distressed Spritzing

Not much time to write tonight. Literally rushed this card together in about 20 minutes. No frills, but needed for a birthday.

Playing along with Nancy's Squirrely challenge as well as The Play Date Cafe #144. Perhaps i should have used a different stencil since you can hardly tell that a flower stencil was used to create the background. Oh well, I gave this TJ technique a shot! I used Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick & Barn Door) for the background. I stamped the flowers in Club Scrap's India Ink...i think the flowers and sentiment are from SU Garden of Life stamp set. I used Distress Markers (Mustard Seed & Wild Honey) to fill in the centers and Worn Lipstick to darken up the flowers.


 
This week's suggested colors are:

Pink Carnation
Orange Sherbet
Lemonade
