NinaB Designs Blog Hop

Welcome to the NinaB Designs Blog Hop! The theme of this month's hop is Stamping Techniques. Nina challenged the team to do a technique, which could be as simple as coloring, die-cutting or more involved like emboss resist, making your own embellishments, etc.
I did a combo of techniques for my card:
I stamped the Penny Black Sweet Dahlia image twice onto white cardstock using Versafine Oynx Black. One panel was sponged using Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Scattered Straw.  The patterned paper from Penny Black Madison Paper Pack was also sponged with Mustard Seed, (just FYI, lol!)
 I wasn't sure where I wanted to go next so ignore the markers in this picture :)

Then I sponged Worn Lipstick on my second flower and applied some Distress Crackle Paint.
After it had dried, I sponged heavily with Fired Brick and fussy cut and paper pieced it.  Love the little cracks, posted a pic so you can see it up close:
 I added some Want2Scrap bling and added a bit of gingham ribbon.

  Here are the products I used:
The NinaB Designs team is giving away these TWO PRIZE PACKAGES:
Prize #1
