Half sheet c/s size
Prepare card front with sponging on color with a sponge (mine did a very fine coverage, not like a sea foam). Pull the edges of the card through the stamp pad and to get the sharper points pull it over the corner of the pad. Add color to the drywall tape by pressing the stamp pad onto it. I lay it on a piece of acrylic or acetate that is easily wiped off. Place tape on card.
Weave scrap c/s of all widths together, sponge on color and drag the edges through the stamp pad. I use tacky glue to hold pieces in place as I weave.
Emboss, color with ink and aqua painter and cut out stamped images and arrange on weave. Using the aqua painter to make a line on mulberry paper (for easy tearing) tear off in strips to glue under the weave. I assembled with tape and tacky glue.

How pretty! I love how the crisp colors of the flowers stands out from the soft background. I bet it took a while to cut all that out! :) Thanks for the detail on putting it together too!
