Card Concept Challenge #85-Rustic Flowers

Hello everyone!
Welcome to another challenge here at 

This time our theme is Rustic Flowers.

I was so inspired by the beautiful flowers and rose aagainst the woodgrain background.

The Misti was a BIG help with creating these flowers. It allowed me
to color the leaves, blue flowers and pink flower outline with Distress Markers.
Then, I re-stamped  the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I watercolored the pink roses with Picked Raspberry and Aged Mahogany  Ranger Distress inks with a water brush. I just love how the roses turned out! If you ever watch any Penny Black videos on YouTube, you will see their designer, Jill Foster, do this technique often. I really loved the results!

I hope I was able to explain this technique clearly!

I think the style of my card would be a combination of shabby chic and mixed media! 
I'm not really sure! LOL!

I hope you will join us for our new challenge!
We love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
All of the styles are explained HERE.
Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
