One Stop Crafts - Make your own DP

I really love the Vintage jumbo roller from Stampin' Up which I used for this background paper. I began by punching out some flower shapes and laying them on a piece of paper before spritzing it with Shimmer Mist in Antique Copper and then using the roller with Basic Gray ink.
I distressed the edges with a little Cats Eye ink in copper.
The French Script stamp is from Hero Arts and the butterfly is Anita's, which I stamped in SU Basic Gray ink and quickly embossed with clear embossing powder before colouring with Perfect Pearls in Antique Copper. The corners are my old faithful Cuttlebug!
I think that's it!
Enjoy your weekend!
