Botanical Print

My second submission for PTI's Make It Monday was heavily inspired by Betsy Veldman.  She had a card published in Stamp It! Techniques magazine that I just loved and wanted to recreate.  I created mine a bit more simply, with only one layer and very minimal embellishment. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cardstock: PTI Vintage Cream, Fine Linen
Stamps: PTI Text Style, Delightful Dahlia, Butterfly Dreams, Anna Griffin Flowers
Ink: Stazon Brown, PTI Tea Dye Duo
Other: Copics, PTI Twine, Vellum
