poking through….

I randomly stamped my images onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Garden Green, Always Artichoke, More MustardBravo Burgandy Inks.  With the Always Artichoke Ink, I did stamp off twice prior to stamping onto the Very Vanilla Cardstock.

Inside Card….

I punched 5 scallop circles from the DSP with the Scallop Circle Punch, sponged around the edges using Bravo Burgandy Ink & Sponge Dauber prior to spritizing all 5 circles with the Very Vanilla Spritzer. This wet my circles so that I could scrunge & play with them.  It also made the sponging run a little & lighten the sponged Bravo Burgandy.
I carefully layered all pieces on top of each other, pierced a hole in the middle with my Paper Piercer, added a Silver Bard to the centre & squashed my flower until I was happy with the shape.

Once the flower was dry, I added a small button to the centre with a Mini-Glue Dot, tied a double bow with the Ribbon, attached to the card with another Mini-Glue Dot & adhered the flower in the centre of the bow, so that it looked a little like leaves.

Since the photo was taken, I again sponged the edges of the flower in Bravo Burgandy to bring out the colour a little more & to take away the pink tinge.

I haven’t added a greeting/sentiment to my card as you are probably all aware, I mostly post blank cards or will add the greeting later when I know what I am going to use it for.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
