Coffee filter flowers

Sometimes when I pull out my craft supplies, I just want to play. I want to distress, spray, smash, squish ink, and get my distress on! It's a contrast to my other primary stamping style, clean and simple. This card is one where I combined both. I made the paper flowers out of coffee filters; I cut the filters out using Nestabilities, then dyed them with Ranger distress inks and spritzed some with gold glimmer mist before layering them on brads and crumpling them. The sentiment panel also has a touch of distressing around the edges.
Now I'm off to get inky again! I have a stamping to-do list that is getting pretty long! I hope you have a great day with some time to get inky!
