Summer Flowers...

We are always "anything goes."
This time our prize is a great stamp set - and we
all know we can always use another set.

This card is a little different from most of my cards. 
The background is alcohol inks blended on yupo paper.
I then stamped the flower images and wiped off the ink 
and you can see the white image left. Next I stamped in black
and used my colorless blender to move some colors around.
