I did a lot of paper tole as a pre-teen. I've seen some here in the gallery and have been wanting to try it again. This image seemed perfect for it. The center flower is actually stamped 3 times and 2 of them are cut out and layered with foam tape. (I watercolored these while on the phone with Andee Cate.)
Well Worn Words is stamped in Regal Rose on Pretty in Pink CS. Then masked with post-its and stamped again to make it fit landscape. Then the whole thing was sponged. I know some people think this BG is splotchy, but I like it this way for a subtle effect.
Sentiment is stamped in artichoke craft and heat embossed with HH EP to go with the shimmer of the shimmer white CS.
Thanks for looking.
