Over the weekend I bought this stamp and wanted to play with it today.
My first thought was to color it with my watercolor crayons. Then I went back over the whole flower with a metallic watercolor wash. I added lots of little black pearls in the center.
The background started out as white cardstock which I colored with Ranger Distress inks. I used mustard seed and rusty hinge pads to color the whole piece and then stamped the flower with brushed corduroy. Stamped the sentiment in dark brown ink. A little dark brown ink around the edges; then layered to brown cardstock.
The patterned paper strip is from K & Company, the border punch from Martha Stewart. Tied a brown grosgrain ribbon around the whole thing and placed on a yellow base card. Popped the flower up with some adhesive squares.
I can see that this stamp will be very versatile and fun to use in a lot of ways!
