I just love these Large Silhouette flowers Asters FS-5 by Starving Artistamps! I chose to stamp them in Pink Pirouette and use a sponge dauber for the edges with Riding Hood Red ink. The frame is 31.02. I thought it would be fun to use a transparency sheet as a mask so I could stamp the flowers in the frames only. So I cut out the 4 windows from it. Once I had that stamped - I used my Stampers Magic Tape (info on that below) and cut it to the same size as my main image then adhered it. Next, I took the top layer (the tape is double-sided) and placed clear microbeads directly on top. It adds a lot of subtle dimension to the focal image. The microbeads stick really well to it! I finished off my card with a row of flowers on the pink pirouette base & thought sponging would add a nice detail to the card (makes a big difference to me!) Lastly, the Scripture Phil. 1:3 from Timeless Sentiments was just the right touch. I'm sure any special friend would appreciate a card like this, to be reassured how grateful you are for their presence in your life.
