For this card I tried Beate's ghosting tutorial. I stamped the leaves in old olive and let dry. I then stamped the blossoms in versamark and brayered certainly celery over the entire piece. Wiped with paper towel to get the white blossoms. I really like the effects of this to create your own background.

I love the colors of this card and how you show-cased the little plum colored flowers in the square metal buckle frame thingy. This card rocks! I am also impressed that you tried a new technique! Nice card.

I've stamped on glossy paper and it didn't quite take on the middle of the stamp like it did on some of the leaves on here, but I kinda like the effect of it. It's not on purpose but it sure looks cool! Great job with this. Love the touch of purple!
