Mixed Media Background

I pulled out that awesome Simon Says Stamp magnolia branch 3D embossing folder again! This time I created a mixed media background by ink smooshing some distress inks and adding some white paint splatters. After I embossed the flowers, I highlighted them with platinum brilliance ink to make them stand out from the background and add a bit of shimmer.
