I really like this card :) I love, Love Love how the Rapberries colors turned out! This is my first attempt at coloring in this stamp, from Flourishes. I admittedly was kinda worried about coloring them, since it's hard to get Rasperries coloring down. I was pleasently surprised at how easy it was to color them in.
I painted a blue "haze" around the raspberries and didn't heat emboss the images in. I wanted the "seed packet" to look like I had accidently left it out in the garden; washed out and faded by the sun and rain. I wanted it to look like an old fragile piece of paper.
I was really trying for a "modern version" of a distressed look. Not distressed brown but full of color only softer. I added pearls, lace and worn ribbons to add to the "modern vintage" feel. I used the backs of the green ribbons for the textures back there :) (I know it all sounds pretentious, I don't mean it to be. It's all my interpretation, from the painted raspberries).
I love the butterflies stamped on vellum, tucked around the card,because you know, we all love butterflies in our gardens (I do :).
