Playing with inks again

Not having much inspiration these days and when I can't think of anything to do I usually end up playing with inks and sprays, trouble is I never know when to stop and end up with lots of inky papers that I never get round to using.  Every bit of colour on this card is from Oakhouse Studios Ink
 called French Lavender, used it in a mini misterfor the main piece, painted the two background pieces with it and then painted the flowers with it too. The ribbon is a piece of seam binding dipped in the ink, I do have very purple fingers too ! Oops just noticed I have used another colour, the green is another Oak House Studio ink. The Stamp is Penny Black Botanical Notes.

I'd like to enter it in these challenges
