Do not stand by my grave

Hero Arts S2057, H3251
Inky Antics 'Do Not Stand'
Ranger:  Jet Black Archival Ink, Old Paper Distress Ink, distress markers (Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick)

I smeared Old Paper DI onto the background stamp, misted water and stamped the image onto mixed media cardstock.  Using distress markers I colored the flower, misted it, then stamped over the background tiles.  Over this I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black AI.  There's a peach/bronze layer of cardstock as well as the green A2 card.

This technique lends itself well to many occasions; I see myself using it when I need to come up with a card rather quickly.  It could easily be embellished with die cuts of butterflies, grass, etc.
