A Sprayed Flower

It's rainy outside today, so the Ways to Use It Challenge -- Just Spray It! -- seemed perfect! I combined it with yesterday's Sketch Challenge. I inked up this Penny Black stamp then spritzed it with water before stamping. Then I used Itty Bitty Backgrounds to make it look like I "sprayed" the ink over the image. The sentiment in the top corner is from Country Blessings (retired). I added some distressing and faux stitching for added interest and texture.

Stamps:
Blush (Penny Black)

Ink:
