The twist was to add inking or painting technique. I used a technique that I have come to love from Tim Holtz's recent online class on using inks. I sponged the distress inks onto the cardstock, then flicked water onto it to make the drops. I used the distress tool to distress the edges. I backed the image panel with black to carry through with the black of the flower. A "miss you" sentiment and it is ready for the OWH box for this month.
