For this card, I used the Technique Tuesday stamp set, Pretty Petals, which is dated from 2012. I love this set! I also used a piece of cardstock in white, silver metallic cardstock from American Crafts, and a small strip of patterned paper.
In addition, I used sequins and stars, some silver string, dimensional adhesive, and regular flat adhesive. Finally, I used several colors of ink and my Misti. The inks are from Memento and are Rose Bud, Desert Sand, Grey Flannel, Lulu Lavender, and New Sprout.
I began by stamping the flower image on white trimmed cardstock. I used ALL the inks, and stamped the image over and over in the same spot. This resulted in a fun mottled color look. I placed some string in a wrapped shape, and after adding dimensional adhesive to the back of the flower, I placed the string in the adhesive, then put this entire panel on the card front. (I cut and scored the card into 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" size). I cut and placed the silver and patterned papers out to the right, then added sequins using a liquid adhesive. Finally I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it, and placed it on the card. I really had a lot of fun making this one!
