Inspiration Showcase Bonus Card- White Distress Stain and Stamping with Water

The first thing I did was use the swiss dot cuttlebug to emboss the front of the card.  On a piece of white paper, I applied walnut stain distress ink.  I had some flourishes from Fancy Flourish ready to go...so I spritzed it with the "perfect pearls" (it did not have any ink on it) and then stamped in onto the paper I just covered with the walnut stain...it looks really cool.

Next, with Water color paper I stamped a Verve flower because it had a lot of petals...then I put some of the blue and purple distress inks onto my craft sheet and sprayed some perfect pearls over the two colors.  With a paint brush, I painted on the flower...didn't have to be careful with staying in the lines because I was planning to cut it out.  Then I found a leaf from In Bloom and stamped and embossed that and applied the whole pad of ink to the paper.  I ended with a sentiment stamped with versamark and embossed with white powder.
