Heartfelt Creations: Delicate Asters Debut!

Hello! It is time for another Heartfelt Creations release. The beautiful aster images in this collection will knock your socks off!  I decided to turn the aster into a fall mum.  Fall is my favorite time of year. I also wanted to show that you can do so much with these stamps and dies.

Sponge edges with Tea Stain distress ink, and distress edges with scissors or fingernail.  Stamp Bold Asters in Dusty Durango ink onto white card stock, and use matching dies to cut. Stamp leaves in Old Olive ink onto white card stock, and use matching dies to cut.  Sponge Crushed Curry ink over white spaces on petals of flowers, and the three tiny dies for the center of flower.
