I love combining stamps that have been in my collection for years with newer tools, like an old favorite negative image stamp by Hero Arts from my stash as the background (inked with a couple shades of Distress Ink) and newer wildflower dies by Tim Holtz.
I grouped together three of the dies, simple cut from black cardstock, to create a bouquet. I added some neutral patterned paper from a 6×6 Prima paper pad to frame my focal point, adding a bit of Distress ink and distressing with a tool for texture. A few wraps of thin jute string are another simple embellishment that adds a lot!
I really like layering my word dies over a white duplicate to help them stand out. It draws your eye to them without adding bulk. For tiny elements like words and florals, matte medium is a fabulous adhesive as you will not see it when it is dry!
Thanks for visiting! Have a creative week…
