Using the Hero Arts Large Flower background stamp, I first stamped it on white cs with Versamark and clear embossed it. Then I sponged Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Broken China, Tea Dye and Wild Honey) over the image and wiped the excess off with a tissue. The green card base just happened to match, so I taped it on the front with double-stick tape. That's as far as I got the first day. I couldn't think of where to go from there. Does that ever happen to you?
Today, I decided it was time to finish. After stamping a portion of it again and using the same colors, I cut out the one flower and attached it with an Action Wobble Spring I purchased online. I tied a matching bow on the stem and decided to add a greeting.
Well, wouldn't you know I had a scrap piece of solid dsp just laying on my table waiting to be used. I thought the greeting, in my warped sense of humor, gave it a play on words totally appropriate. Three light green pearls gave it that final touch.
Now all I have to do is stop making it wiggle! (It's addictive!)
