Forget Me Not

Split Coast Stampers Love Fest 2013 intrigued me. I liked Unity Stamps Inspired Challenge. The photo of tiny turquoise flowers made me think of Forget Me Nots, a spring flower in my garden that brings back nostalgic childhood memories. I watercoloured the background with distress inks:dusty concord, antique linen, stormy sky, fired brick and black soot was used to edge the paper. SU inks: cameo coral, elegant eggplant, tempting turquoise. I stamped the forget me nots cut them out, and used tools to dry emboss them to make them pop. The lattice work is a MS punch. The sentiment and forget me nots are SU Vintage Vogue. I used a branch die cut from the same paper as the background. Thanks for looking.
