Hand Stamped Sentiments Splash Challenge

Today's card is for a color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
This challenge is called a Splash Challenge and included 5 colors,

I don't know why but that seemed like a lot of colors and it took me awhile to put it together, but I'm pleased with the final product.

Stamps: Greenhouse Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Rose Red
Ink: rose Red, Basic Black, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Punches: Modern Label, Word Window
Accessories: 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Color Spritzer Tool, Cutter Kit, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Old Olive Brads, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

The edges of the Crumb Cake and Whisper White were distressed with the Cutter Kit and then sponged with Classic Ink.
The "spray" of color on the Whisper White was done using the Olive Stampin' Write Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool.
Greenhouse Garden is a 2-step stamp set, which means the flower image was stamped first with the Rose Red Ink, and the the back lines were stamped over the Rose Red. To do this the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is an absolute necessity, it helps with the placement of the stamps so things line up.

I will post a tutorial on using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and the Color Spritzer Tool later on today.
