So why, you will say, did I go with a polka dot flower? I have no real idea. This is what came to me, and believe me, I sat, and stood, and sat, and stood, and sat, and sat, and sat and sketched, and went through paper and stamps before I decided on this. And..... I'm still not satisfied with it. I like the pearls but I don't like all that pink underneath it. What do you think?
I stamped the lily from 5th Avenue Floral 3 times on my polka dotted designer paper. Then I cut out three layers as you can see here.
I also stamped the stamens on So Saffron cs and cut those out using my post-it note trick. Using a So Saffron marker, I dotted the tips of the stamens, but I'm not sure you can see that here. (Note to self - get some of that Flower Soft stuff, it would have looked a lot better!)
Oh, and to top it off, when I picked up the Happy Mother's Day Stamp, apparently I hadn't cleaned it after I used it so when I inked it up with Certainly Celery boy was I surprised when I stamped the card base and got this horrible pink-green color. Thank goodness I hadn't attached any of the other pieces yet. So, sometime before Sunday, I'm going to have to figure out something to hide that on the back of this card because I was too lazy to cut another piece. Raise your hands - how many of you have ever done that before? Higher, I can't see you!
