Firstly, I die-cut a banner die from Sizzix then inked it with my favourite
distress ink combos (reds, oranges and yellows) then stamped the image.
Using a wet paintbrush and dabbing away with a paper towel I removed
most of the ink from the stem section of the flower leaving just the main
flower head in tact. I couldn't bear to remove that bit if I'm honest. To add a
little more faux bleach I flicked water with my paintbrush on to the panel
and let it sit for 30 seconds before dabbing the excess up with the towel.
To finish a little glitter edging to the banner, a sentiment from Clearly Besotted:
Brushed Greetings II and some glitter gems from Happy Little Stampers.
The stencil is one of my favourites and coincidentally it's by
My Favourite Things ... Concentric Circles. The inlaid die cut
Thanks is from WPlus9 and the scalloped die-cut border is by
Lawn Fawn with a few sequins from Lucy's Little Things to finish.
I'd like to link this one up at Happy Little Stampers: Anything Goes with dies
