Casual Friday and Tracy Evans Inspired

Morning and as it's 1st of the month I have three DT post and the third one is for the ATG challenge at Love To Scrap and as we are sponsored by Cas-ual Fridays I used the stamp set Truth Is--- sorry think it is out of stock!
My card was influenced by watching Tracy Evans on Hochanda -the background was made smooshing distress ink on craft mat,then putting a die-cut circle on the card and swiping outwards with more distress ink.I stamped the flowers once on the card then the flower heads once on book paper and paper pieced then one again onto an offcut os P.paper and added with a 3-D foam pad for depth.
Dooled round the circle and stamped the smaller flower heads down one stem and the sentiments down the other stem.
I stamped script in a couple of places and a couple of strips of dictionary paper-a couple of splatters and done.

WOW! Carol! GORGEOUS card, so much inspiration with this card, but I shall have to reread and reread to understand, as I'm new to all this distress inks art. I absolutely love how you have put the circle and the flower stamp together, with the dictionary paper makes it awesome.

Oww, this is one of those creations which is hard to look away from because the more you look, the more you see. I love the 'Tracy Evens effect' and the way you have built up the flower head, it all looks amazing.
