I like solid color blocking but my creative spirit "told" me to give it a twist w/a little masking and my most fav bkgrd stamp from LKR. Instead of using one flower and a big leaf, I used PTI Harvest Berries. I stamped once on the card, then again, cutting out some of the leaves, using SU dimensionals to pop them up. I used Ranger spiced marmalade to add some random "berries," and stamped the IO sentiment in Memories black. Used a Ranger ink applicator w/sponge and wild honey ink, to distress all around the edges of the card.
Stamps: PTI, Local King Rubber, Impression Obsession
Paper: Paper Studios
Ink: SU, Ranger di, Memories
Accessories: Ranger blending tool, scrap paper for masking, SU dimensionals
THANKS for looking! :)

A nice case, Gabby. I like that bg stamp you used and have to say that I never heard of LKR until very recently. I now have a few of their stamps and think this one you used would fit nicely in my collection. The leaves and berries are great too!

You picked one of my favorite cards of all time and then you created one I like even more! Those ginger leaves are perfect and your background choice just makes them pop! Lovely, lovely, lovely. Thank you for honoring me so sweetly and beautifully.
