Clean and Simple Inkpad Card

This card was inspired by the Tuesday Trigger photo:



I wasn't sure what direction to go with this, because I don't have any patterned paper or stamps similar to that horizontal leafy / teardrop pattern.

However! I do have several teardrop shaped ink pads!

I used ink pads to stamp the "leaves" and used a sharpie to draw in the stem. I then used a distress blue inkpad to ink the edges of the stamped piece. The sentiment is stamped with the same grey inkpad used in the design.



I think this is a clean and simple version of the inspiration photo, made using what I have on hand!
