When I sat down to stamp yesterday my only plan was that I wanted to use this Eleanor Roosevelt quote from the Sparkly Dreams set, so that's where I started. I had also envisioned popping up some of the poppies in the Floral Notes set and rounding the edges to give them some more dimension, so decided to try that out, too.
So I stamped the large poppy image twice in archival black ink, then watercolored with distress inks and a waterbrush. I cut one image out with the coordinating die from the Floral Notes Die Set, then fussy cut four of the blooms from the other stamped image, curled the edges with my fingers and glued over the top of my die cut image. I added some glossy glaze and a pinch of glitter to each flower center for a little zing. The sentiment from Sparkly Dreams is stamped onto a circle die cut and I embellished with some orange rhinestones.
The long thin pennant is stamped in pumpkin pie with the double wheat image from Sparkly Dreams, then I layered some fun patterned papers, sponging each layer with some distress ink for a little bit of depth and finished with a white card base. Super easy and a whole lot of fun!
