2021 Stash Bash #13 - The Good Seed

 Hello, Crafty Mates!

This project had its beginnings as a concept for a seed package.  I was also practicing another background creation technique. The stamping and ink layering turned out so nicely, I decided that the seed package would have to be a challenge for another day! 
Good Seed
This is one of my favorite flora stamps!  I am always looking for interesting ways to use it.  Over the past few months, I have grown my collage stamp stash, a little.  There are a few more that I want, but those will have to remain wish list items unless I receive a sudden and unexpected infusion of cash from an unknown source!😁

I used pigment ink to stamp my image and sentiment.  Pigment ink is messy but I think the stamped images are more intense.  I love using my Bira stamping platform.  Because of its open design, I have more flexibility when it comes to positioning my projects.  
I stamped a second flower on a piece of scrap paper, colored it, and applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents!  I used Zots to apply the new bloom image to the card face.  Although it does not show well in my photographs, the dimension is there, and it is quite nice.

Thanks for stopping by!
