Well, this is not quite what I had in mind when I began, but it is what I ended up with. ;) I started out stamping my woodgrain piece, inking first with Crumb Cake then stamp kissing on some Pistachio spatter. I stamped this through a torn edge mask. I added some fine Crumb Cake spatter over the whole piece. My leaves were inked with Crumb Cake and had lines stamped in 2 directions in Pistachio over that before stamping. I had initially had my first flower on the main piece, but didn't like the way it looked so I tore it out. I had used Versamark then Crumb Cake with a bit of Cantaloupe thumped on and embossed in clear. For the 2nd two flowers I omitted the Cantaloupe part and like the effect better. I watercolored with wet brush and ink from the pad lid. The torn edge is sponged with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I added a crumpled Crumb Cake ribbon and tied on another small piece with some Linen Thread. My sentiment was stamped in Suede, but it didn't show up very well so I added some pencil. I also added pencil along the torn edge for more depth.
