This card started with the background piece. I sponged it with wilted violet distress ink and added droplets of water which gave it some white spots. After it dried, I stamped it with white craft ink using a SU! stitched background stamp. I wanted to add more, so I stenciled with some citron distress ink and a TH burlap stencil on 2 corners, and then sponged a little antique linen ink lightly over the stenciled corners. As a final touch, I embossed the panel with a WRMK next level gemstones ef.
Next I stamped the SU! blended bloom flower twice, fussy cutting the center portion and popping it up with dimensionals over the lower portion of the flower. I colored the flower with Copics and gel pens. The leaves were done with a Hero Arts stamp on some granny apple green striped dsp from SU, fussy cut, and popped up on dimensionals after being curled around a glue stick. The white stems were done with a SU! bouquet Bunch framelits die and 2 dies from a set of dies by Precious Maricke called Leaves. The ladybugs were done with a Memory Box set of dies enhanced with a white gel pen, and the sentiment is by Lawn Fawn, embossed with white ep on black. For the final touch, I added some Nuvo clear sparkle drops to the leaves and placed this on a granny apple green cardstock base by SU!
