Good Sunday morning all! It's a bumper week for the Stamps To Die For range, here is another one to show you! I started by embossing a piece of milk card with the Small Beaded Fanfare Pinpoint embossing folder. I decided to use the opposite side of the embossing and I inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink for a soft vintage look to it. I stamped the Garden Song Stamp To Die For in black on milk card. I inked it with Antique Linen as well and cut it out with the matching Bora Bora dies to create a frame. I stamped it again but this time I just inked up the flowers on it. I cut them by hand and coloured them with Distress markers and added them with foam on top of the flowers in the original for a 3D look. I added a touch of glue to the petals and sprinkled a bit of Iced Snow on each of them too. I stamped the sentiment (from a Phill Martins stamp set called Petite Scribbled Occasions Sentiments). I cut it out with the Stitched Flags die set and added it across the card. I inked it with Antique Linen as well. The card was completed with milk card and duck egg blue card mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.
