Browsing about last night I saw that Try It On Tuesday's challenge is Add a Quote, I love quote stamps and have quite a collection but they don't get used often enough, after saying that I ended up using quite a simple one from Hobby Arts Sunny Day Greetings set, took the opportunity to get messy with my homemade ink sprays again, its a pity that the lovely sheen doesn't show up on here,the three I've used were made with Luna lights paints.  All the stamps used are Paperartsy except the quote, coloured everything with distress inks, fussy cut and layered the flowers and the butterfly and added a bit of white pen to the flowers.
