ODBD for OWH September Challenge

Here's my entry for the OWH ODBD September challenge to make your own background. I used the GinaK stamp set Stately Flowers #6 and chose the Mountain Laurel image for the image and background. I stamped the background using Versamark ink, and then stamped the image on white with Memento ink and colored it with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, and matted with green card stock. I added some green gingham ribbon and some gold stickles to the flower centers and called this one done.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday!
