Wobbly Spring

This was a fun card to make!

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!)

Hi Doris, You've been busy since I last visited! I really, really love this card with the Springy flower! Great technique and I love the way you cut out one flower and the banner with the sentiment.
