I don't know quite why (!) but I decided to use the remains of a top note cut-out to use as a mask which I held over my card base while I sponged a background inside with So Saffron and Old Olive inks. I've used my favourite Confetti card stock with those beautiful speckles in it.
The white flowers from Greenhouse Garden were stamped on top of this and embossed with white embossing powder. I really like the misty look of them! The stalk from the set was added randomly in Old Olive and then came the Nature Walk plant, which I coloured with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive markers before stamping repeatedly.
To finish I defined the white flowers with markers and added a sentiment using my stamp-a-majig. This was one of those cards which started with me wondering what would happen if I just... and then ended up like this!

This week, my 10-year old son went to a science fair at the 'big school' his older brother and sister attend. When he got home I asked if he'd enjoyed his day. It was brilliant, he told me - he'd met his sister's friends at lunchtime! I told him that sounded great, but what about the science aspect of the day? He then launched into an animated monologue about how this cool guy had made a ball of flame on the end of a stick and it had exploded! He added that he was thinking about buying some hydrogen and some nitric acid on ebay. He then disappeared outside to play, leaving me mentally picturing the charred remains of the family home...
