Sugar Nellie - 'You Brought Me Love'

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning everyone! 
So for my Design Team card this cold Wednesday I decided to use one of the gorgeous Gorjuss girl stamps again (because I love them lol); this one is called 'You Brought Me Love' and she's available as a mini stamp. These stamps are so versatile, because you can really pretty them up or make them look vintage and shabby. So for my card I decided I wanted her to have a shabby chic looking or maybe it's more gothy....mmm, you decide. To achieve the look I used distressing ink pads and pens on watercolour card.  
This stamp and lots of other Gorjuss stamps are available to buy from Funkykits.
Here's What I Did
Firstly I matted a shaped card base with black card stock and beautiful patterned paper. The image was stamped directly onto some watercolour card and die cut it into a circle.  Next I created my background, and I purposely made it blotchy by leaving pools of water on the surface of the paper, this produced a watermark effect. I coloured the main image in with a selection of distressing ink pads and pens keeping to a vintage colour palette.

The completed image was then mounted onto a die cut black circle, and added to the card base using foam tape. To finish off I added a few punched out butterflies.
