MOJO 152

I really was "inspired" today, but came a long way from where I began this card! It looks something like the sketch??? Check out Mojo Monday.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: Vellum Card Stock, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade
Stamps: Because I Care (hostess)
Ink: Poppy Parade and Jet Black Staz On
Extras: Matt Pack foam pad and Stylus, Boho Blossoms, Eyelet Border, 1/2" punches, 1/2" So Saffron Striped and 1/8" Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbons, Stampin' Dimensionals

To get the effect with the flower in the middle, I stamped the image onto Vellum Cardstock with Staz On ink. I let it dry and then turned the vellum to the back side on top of my foam piece from the Matt Pack and used the stylus tool (larger end) to press into the vellum in random areas. It leaves it white and bumpy on the front side for some texture and depth. Plus I don't have to water color the image! Yeah! I learned this technique from Dawn Olchefske over at DOstamping.
