Stamp Some More!

Here is my 3rd entry for the Stamp It Challenge. I think I will keep stamping until the challenge is over....
 This time I used the "kissing" technique. I love the music background with this image called Dancing with Flowers.
live,love,laugh
The entire stamped image took the stage and very little embellishment was needed. But then I decided to  add the tulle on top for that dreamy feeling.  Here's my step by step in case you want to try this out.

Supplies: Cardstock: (Grandma’s Feather Bed) Bazzill Basics Paper, Cling stamp: (Dancing with      Flowers, Music Background) Hero Arts, Pigment Ink by Colorbox (Pink, Aqua, Lilac, Lime, and Apple Green), Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black), Bazzill Adhesive Pearls, SRM Press (Life Is Good), Glossy Accent, tulle (aqua, 6”x2”)

Instructions
1. Make card from card stock 
2. Ink the solid image (Dancing with Flowers) with Colorbox Ink 
3. Ink the Music Background with black ink and stamp it onto the solid image 
4. Stamp the solid image on white card stock, trim to 4 ½ x4 ½ 
5. Layer all the paper and adhere to card base, apply sentiment sticker 
6. Tie a knot with tulle and adhere to the top with Glossy Accent, add pearls.

My next post is " Did you know..." feature. It's a fun one :)

Hey there..I saw this the other day, but when I clicked through it said it didn't exist. Did you post and move it back to edit mode and then repost?
