Classic Beate layout. I stamped the violets with black Staz-On onto vellum, trim. Place image face down onto an old foam-style mouse pad (or the foam pad that comes in the SU tool kit). Using a stylus (and I used the new Paper Glide [Michaels] spray - made the dry embossing a snap!), I guided it around the petals, stems and the veins only of the large leaf. Using SU markers I colored in the petals on the (now raised) image front, blending with a blender pen. Using SU pop-dots I positioned one behind each dry-embossed flower and one behind the leaf & adhered to a piece of white cardstock the same size as the inner frame. Applied Snail to the back of the white cs & adhered that to the elegant eggplant section. The black tab was created using black cs & the word window punch, folded punched piece in half & adhered.
