Bouquet on Wood

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today.  Have you played in the Background challenge this week?  I love stamping with my background stamps, and I pulled out two of them to use on this card today.

I stamped the Wood Texture Cover-A-Card background stamp onto some Kraft cardstock with a brown ink, and then I sponged the edges with the same brown ink.  Next, I stamped a small strip of green paper with the gorgeous Tapestry 2 - Cover-A-Card background stamp.  I cut out a white border from the Ankara Lace Border die and glued that under the strip of green paper, and then I glued this piece onto the wooden background.

Next, I cut out the gorgeous Blushing Bouquet die from white paper, and while the die cut was still inside the die, I sponged on some pink ink over the flower petals. There are holes in the steel die that are specially made so you can sponge color onto the flower petals - so cool! After I pushed the paper out of the die, I could see the gorgeous pink sponging.  I then used a Copic marker to color the leaves and stems the same pale green shade as my paper. 

I adhered the flower bouquet to my background piece, and then I affixed some Mother of Pearl Rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.  The colors in the rhinestones are a perfect match to the colors I've used on this card.  Next I tied some Chalk White Seam Binding around the background piece, and then I glued this down to a green card base.

Why don't you try mixing up your background stamps and see what you can put together?  It's fun to see all the different combinations of background stamps!  I hope you play along in our challenge this week!

Your card is so pretty! Thanks Holly!
