You've got to check out the gallery of this week's queen Loll Thompson and play along to honor Loll http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...l#post19685614 There is so much inspiration in her gallery that I couldn't limit myself to one card of hers so I took the basic layout of this one http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...f&way=desc with the die cut flourish with hydrangeas and the color scheme (which is right up my alley) from these beauties http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...f&way=deschttp://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...f&way=desc. I started with a marker technique from today's Ways to Use it Challenge to use markers in a technique. I used a modified Smackin' Acetate where I used several neutral markers and spritzed with water then dunked my Crumb Cake cs in, dried it then dunked again. For the main front piece I then overstamped with Script in Soft Suede, tore the edges and sponged with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso. I ran a piece of Early Espresso through the big shot with the Distressed Texturz plate for a wood grain then die cut it with Flourishes 10 and 11. I punched my Regal Rose cs with the MS Hydrangea punch and sponged the edges with the same. I curled the petals slightly with my piercing tool and added tiny pearl centers. I used a Circles Nestability die to cut out the circle and used a double layer of Stampin' dimensionals to pop this over my base that I also used the marker technique on. I added a piece of chunky twine to this then glued my flourishes and flowers around the edge of my circle.
