Wild Flowers (AKA Weeds)

I just recently used a set of stamps from Chapel Road Artstamps. They inspired me to make my new banner and another card. I forgot I had purchased 2 sets when I went to my LSS along time ago. They are called Thistle Etc (B) and Teasel Etc (B).

I started with a background made from smearing Ranger Distress inks on acetate. (Weathered Wood and Tea Dye) I spritzed water on the ink until it was very runny and then I put a piece of white cardstock on top of the wet ink.

Stamp the words using the weathered wood and stamped the other images randomly on the distress ink background.


  • Versafine - Olympia Green, Vintage Sepia
  • Ranger Distress Ink - Weathered Wood, Tea Dye
  • JoAnn Fabric - Lace Trim
  • Blue Moon Lost Charms - Butterflies (These are all clearanced at Michael's)
  • Buttons - unknown
  • Raffia - (After Christmas sale of raffia and kraft wrapping paper)
  • Chapel Road Artstamps - Thistle Etc (B), Teasel Etc (B)
