Groovy Garden

I wish I would have saved the link to the card I commented on this afternoon which used groovy guava and copper. Love that color combo. She did an awesome job. Inspired me!

I haven't stamped a serious design in a few months. A few birthdays here and there, but nothing that was a "creative process", KWIM? This was finally it. I am happy with it considering my one year old was pulling EVERYTHING out in my craft room while I was working...punches, stamps, scraps, stamp pads, etc.

The card is 5.5 X 5.5. The main image was stamped in Versamark and embossed with copper EP. I used sponges and ink to shade the main image, then cut it out and did a bit more shading on the edges. I used my new treading water punch on the copper CS and layered some fun ribbon on top of it. I cut the backs off of the brads and used Zot Dots to adhere them to the project. I have found that if you want brads straight, don't punch holes. lol. My weird method. ;) The main image was adhered using dimensional adhesive. Almost forgot...I added some yellow/gold to the center of the flower using my Sakura Stardust gel pen.
