So I wanted to make a background using some of my gorgeous Simon Says Stamp inks. I grabbed an old stamp set with a solid flower on it and went to town stamping. Gorgeous, but..... it was so busy! Now what? Well, here is where I ended up:
I needed to tone down the background so I put vellum over it. A little stitching with a sewing machine held it down. I used the Hello Sunshine die to create the focal point. Now I admit that this card background makes no sense with the sentiment but hey, I went with it. I die cut the sun and stamped, die cut and Copic colored the birdie. I added a little Glossy Accents to the "hello" because every card must have Glossy Accents!
