Wildflower Inchie

This was  a bit experimental in that I tried tea dyeing paper.

The inchie is a snippet of sploshed, dribbled, spritzed leftover from another project but I liked it and didn't want to throw it away - hmmm ... perfect for an inchie.  The supporting strip is a snippet from my tea dye experiment.  I thought it looked soft and made a nice transition from the crispness of the stripey EF to the splotchiness of the inchie.
The stamp is of wildflower seedheads, so perfect for autumn.

Stamp: Indigo Blu
EF:Kaisercraft
