Summer Flowers

I'm back, using another beautiful stamp from the new Magenta catalog.  This one is Echinacea, by the very talented Ellie Knol.  All three cards use the same technique:  I colored the stamp with Memento markers; then spritzed it with water mixed with a little perfect pearls, and stamped it onto white cardstock.  I added Stickles to the top of each flower (because I like everything to be shiny).  I'm showing 3 different color palettes, and 3 different layouts to showcase how versatile this stamp is.  The ants in the second card are also a new stamp from Ellie Knol (LOVE the ants!)
