Agapanthus Cluster Card

Today I have another card using stamps from Stampendous.  I have always loved this agapanthus cluster stamp.  There is something regal about the way they stand so tall and firm.
I had seen this masking technique on Pinterest, and wanted to give credit to the person who posted it, however, when I went back to find it I could not find it!  If anyone knows, please let me know, and I will give her/him credit for the idea.

I do not know how they did theirs, as I did not follow through on the link.  But here is how I did mine.  I started with a white panel and torn paper.  I laid down a piece of the torn paper, then, with my TH distress inks, sponged the first colors, mustard seed and fossilized amber.   Then I tore another sheet, masked off the next section, and sponged candied apple, then repeated the process with faded jeans and peeled paint.
Then I simply stamped the aganpanthus cluster over the background and added some white highlights for interest.  The verse is from a clear Stampendous set (SSC039).  I embossed it onto black card stock with white embossing powder.  It seemed to need something, so I ran my black stamp pad along the outer edges to frame it in. 

A few black sequins finished off the front.  The panel is raised onto a white card using fun foam.

I am adding this card to the following challenges:
