A flower for all Seasons
The Preferred Swap Stamp for April is "A Flower for All Seasons" and it was very difficult to decide which one of the four to choose!
I ended up with the Tulips and bird. The basic card stock is So Saffron with a strip of Old olive on the inside and punched with the scallop border then stamped with Itty Bitty Background mini stamp.
The Old Olive dsp used on the front was spritzed with water and ran through the Big Shot Texturz Plate: Eyelet. I found that even with a shim, the impression works best when it is spritzed first. Especially when you use regular card stock because it is even heavier than the dsp.
I used the spiral punch on the dsp by the flower and I used Styled Silver Hardware for the Sentiment "Hello" from Fundamental Phrases.
