Stamp Without A Stamp At Make My Monday

Hello everyone, I'm a little late with my post for our new challenge at Make My Monday which has been chosen by Shawna and shock, horror, the theme is to Stamp But With Something That Isn't A Stamp!
Here's my rather zingy inspiration which I hope you like.

I made the background by using my fingers to apply several shades of acrylic paint to a piece of mixed media paper. I then used a piece of netting that held fruit as a stencil to apply Ranger Dye Ink in Wild Orchid and Electric Lime to the painted paper.
I used a That's Crafty Dinky Stencil with Archival Watering Can ink to apply the dotty pattern to the paper. I then used 3 different sizes of bottle caps with all 3 inks to apply the circles randomly to the paper.
I coloured some paper with the 3 shades of ink and die cut the flowers and centres from these with some X Cut flower dies. I drew the stalks and glued the flowers on then added this to a card blank. I finished off with some Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers.

Have a great week and see you soon.
Fliss xx
