Seeds of Today

Happy Sunday!  Lynda Joy here, with a quick and easy card for today's inspiration.  
While I have really enjoyed creating so many holiday cards these past few weeks, I'm ready to get back to some every day stamping.
Technique Junkies stamps:  
Dogwood Blossom 
Seeds of Today 

I chose this lovely little dogwood stamp, and kept my card to two colors to keep it simple.  I inked the stamp in my Misti, using distress minis.  I added the lightest colors first, then gradually built up to the darker shading colors.  I love the Misti for this technique.  

I added some additional color to the flower with pastel pencils, and blended it out with a tortillion.

The verse was stamped with cocoa ink.  I added some distressed edges with distress ink and a brush, then layered it onto a green panel, then onto the card.

That is it!  Easy-peasy.  I hope you are able to find some time to create today.  It feels good to be back in my craft room after all of the holiday festivities.
