I decided to pull out this big Stencil Flower cling stamp and play with it a bit. I stamped it on white paper, colored it with a combination of tumbled glass and broken china distress inks, then spritzed it with perfect pearls in water and after drying, added some colored pencil details. On Jennifer McGuire's blog today, she had some cards using a striped stamp, and that gave me the idea to use my big background stamps for behind the flower. I love the effect of little pin stripes and lace! Then all I had to do was add some ribbon and pearls and the sentiment.

And here is version #2, using spun sugar and worn lipstick distress inks to color the flower and to stamp the background. This time I added a fabric flower to the center of my stamped flower and some pink-dotted black designer paper from the Basic Grey porcelain paper pad, following Jennifer's lead to use a bit of designer paper with my stamping.
