More Flowers for Penny Black and More Challenge

Hello, it's time for the reminder post at Penny Black and More where our theme this month is "Say it with Flowers". Still a little bit of time left to join us if you haven't already and remember you may enter up to 3 times! Prizes come from  Penny Black and Stamp Addicts this month.

I used a newer stamp from the Penny Black Secret Garden release, this one is called Exhilaration. It also includes a brushstroke butterfly, but I didn't use it today.

It's been inked up using Distress Oxide inks. I actually tried with regular distress markers but the ink was bubbling up and I couldn't get a good impression. It worked better with oxide inks and thank goodness for my stamp platform!! There would have been a lot of wasted cardstock otherwise! 

The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Friendship, stamped with Gathered Twigs distress oxide ink, then again with versamark on black cardstock and heat embossed. 

I also added some stenciling using penny Black's Oscillations Stencil and TCW Circle Explosion
