Thinking Of You Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Cottage Garden Stamp Set

One of my favorite places to look for inspiration is Pinterest, and that is where I headed before I started to create with this stamp set. I typed Scandinavian designs into the search bar and came across this fun tote bag image. Immediately, I was inspired to create a similar type pattern using a bunch of the images from the stamp set.

To create the pattern, I began by placing a piece of watercolor paper, cut to 4x5.25 inches, into the corner of my MISTI. I then played around with where to position all of the images and one sentiment until the card was covered with images. To fill the space to the right of the little flower, I stamped that image 2 more times to create a row of flowers. Once I had my pattern figured out, I was ready to start stamping.

The entire pattern is stamped with Versamark Watermark Embossing Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then applied Distress Ink using a foam blending tool.

Next, I flicked a little water onto the paper using a paint brush and then dabbed it dry with a paper towel. The final touch was to tie a piece of jute around the panel and attach it to my card base.
