Excuses made, lets get on with the show.
I love projects that begin with a blank piece of paper, full of potential, waiting to be transformed. In this case I've used very vanilla for the front and naturals ivory for the base.
Mask off a section of the card where you will make the collage.
Use versa mark on the frame stamp to clear emboss some patterns for the background.
Use some stampin' Sponges and classic stampin' pads to colour the masked area, I used pool party and pear pizzazz. When done wipe with a paper towel to remove any ink which is sitting on the embossed areas, this ink will not dry so needs to be removed.
Using pool party ink pad, stamp some leaves randomly over the space. Remember to wipe away any residue sitting on top of the embossed areas.
Use pear pizzazz to stamp the circular frame randomly across the space and wipe off any excess.
To add more depth stamp a few of the flowers in basic grey.
Heat emboss three butterflies with pool party embossing powder and cut round them.
Ink the edges of the butterflies with basic grey ink.
Use fabulous phrases along with the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the words enjoy, smile & celebrate in basic grey on a scrap of very vanilla. Trim around the phrase and ink the edges.
Assemble the card and admire your work!!
