The Seeds of Today

This background was started at the same time as the last card I shared.  It's the same technique with the same colors plus the color sherbet (all Fresco Finish paints).  On top of that I've got circles stamped in zesty zing with the bottom of the zesty zing bottle.  Leaves (PaperArtsy Lin Brown) stenciled with a mix of paint (snowflake, guacamole, limelight, zesty zing).  Partial stamping with the flower in PaperArtsy's Lin Brown set #ELB09 using Archival Ink rose madder.  I painted a scrap of paper with sherbet, stamped the whole flower on it with rose madder, cut it out, cut between each petal, ink the edges with rose madder, shaped the petals, and also added a bit of Treasure Gold renaissance on the edges.  There is also some renaissance on the edges of the background.  The quote (Lin Brown set ELB06) is stamped with Archival Ink jet black.  This is layered to colored cardstock and then a white folded card.  Dots added with a Pitt Pen.  The flower attached and the center is a Finnabair flower and a heart brad.
