Alcohol inks on Yupo

Now I see this on the computer I wish I'd used a less textured card stock.  I used a linen card as the background for the flowers. The texture caused some striations in my solid fairy stamp.  Oh well something to remember next time ­čśĆ
My flowers are a Dee's Distinctley die with the heads being cut out of Yupo with alcohol inks, I first cut the whole flowers in watercolour card and watercoloured the stems.  I then cut the flower heads again in the Yupo and attached them to the watercolour paper.  The background, sentiment  and Fairy is stamped in Delicata Gold ink.  The background is from Technique Junkies, the Fairy is from Ali Express, and the sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

I'm entering this for the following challenges
