After begining surrounded by the whiteness of snow for 8 months of the year, I can't wait for the landscape to flood with color. I tried to create a card that reminded me of the flower gardens with a single flower standing out. I started the background with my new Hero Arts stamp and used a gold dabber acrylic paint on the stamp to create a shabby chic imprint. I used Cut n' Dry sponge to blend the background distress ink colors, distressed the edges and covered the background with iridescent Memories Mist. A medium size flower from the background stamp was stamped, embossed and inked. I used the scrap of paper from inking the flower as the background for the HA sentiment. Final touches of embellishment included inking the lace and card base and adding stickles, pearl and gems.
