awash w/ flowers

 my folks celebrated 32 yrs of marriage on  July 13 and this is the card i stamped up for them. it was so quick, easy, but packs a lot of punch...u agree? First off, those vintage brads(which i tend to hoard bc they are oh' so pretty) just make the card. If you don't have a flower stamp set that you LOVE, IMO everyone should have this set. it's two step stamping, but "water color" two step stamping. Waz the dif u may say? Well, when it's 'water color' there is no need to be precise. a little sloppy aka off center, is what gives you the look! Like you can see above. i have the clear mount, so you first stamp the outline in a dark color and fill in w/ a lighter shade. i also stamped off once to lighten even a bit more!

the beloved dsp, two tiny little strips give the added pop of color!

paper: old olive, whisper white, choc chip dsp, paisley petals dsp(new in caty now)
ink: choc chip, marina mist, old olive, choc chip marker
stamps: teeny tiny wishes, awash w/ flowers
tools: color spritzer tool, 1/8' hole punch(for linen thread), matte pack(to pierce hole for my brad)
accessories: linen thread, antique brads
