Stretching Your Stamps...another lattice background card

This time the PTI  tag # 6 was stamped with the lattice background stamp...I used the Paper Smooches 'flower' stamp again but I "kissed" it with a PTI gingham background stamp in Wisteria...now the leaves were stamped in simply chartreuse with the same flower stamp, but I took the lovely layers vein stamp and 'kissed' it to the inked petal and then stamped it...what it did was pull some of the ink away from the areas of the vein...it looks kind of cool...the center is from lovely layers...raspberry fizz and winter wisteria...the two strips at the bottom are washi tape from Michael's.  All of this is adhered onto a kraft cardstock that was embossed with the wood grain plate.

  2. The lattice backround works really well with the flowers, reminds me instantly of a secluded corner in a beautiful garden.

  4. That woodgrain embossing is lovely. All the various stamps applied are so pretty. I often use various stamps for flowers etc and it's such a cool way to use these stamps in another way.
