See clearly on a beautiful day

Oh, I had so much fun creating the card for this challenge for Cornish Heritage Farms. We had to stamp a backgrounder on something other than paper. I started with a complete different project, but then set that one aside for another day.

I decided to use two backgrounders on this card. The first one, climbing floral was colored with markers (yes, I know I'm nuts - the flowers and leaves are very, very tiny), then spritzed with water and stamped. I also used this method to stamp the modern lily several times. Then I glued a used dryer sheet over the images to give a softness to the card. Then I stamped the lined paper backgrounder and the sentiment on a transparency and attached them at the top of the card with eyelets and ribbon.

I punched a key tag punch in navy and folded it over the edge near the bottom and then attached a felt flower and a build-a-brad.

stamps: climbing floral backgrounder, lined paper backgrounder, modern lily (all CHF)
ink: jet black stazon, ultramarine stazon, regal rose, always artichoke, brocade blue, night of navy
paper: confetti navy, very vanilla
other: transparency (office supply store), navy eyelets, crop-a-dile, burgundy grosgrain ribbon, build a brad (SU), felt flower (Creative Impressions)

I'm so glad you stopped by. I hope you have a wonderful week.

That backgrounder stamped on the dryer sheet makes it look like a sweet patterned fabric. Can't believe you colored a background stamp with markers... such patience! Awesome job with their challenge!
