I love these colors but I had one problem.... I didn't have Pacific Point ink or cardstock! What was I to do??? My friend Andrea reminded me that I had some of the Brights Collection Background DSP and man was I relieved! I still wasn't sure how to use the Pacific Point DSP though without something else that coordinated with it. Well here's what I came up with and I really did love how it turned out!
I decided to use the You've Got This Stamp Set and do some paper-piecing. I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" card base scored at 5 1/2". I layered on a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of the Pacific Point DSP from the Brights Background DSP stack. I then cut a piece of 3 3/4" x 5" Sahara Sand cardstock that had been stamped tone-on-tone with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped one flower on the left side of the hardwood background and used a Mossy Meadow Stampin' Marker to color in the stem and leaf. I then stamped the flower with Memento Tuxedo Black ink several times onto the Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point DSP and fussy cut out the bloom only. I layered one over the flower that I stamped onto the Hardwood and then began to layer other flowers around the sides and bottom of the hardwood. I used a White wink of stella glitter pen in the center and then used a Black Medium Tip Faber Castell artist pen to outline the stamped portion so that it would stamp out a little more. I then used embossed the I'm here for you sentiment in black in the upper right and then as usual I felt it needed something else so I threaded some linen thread into a Pacific Point button from the Brights Buttons and glued it onto a gathered piece of Sahara Sand Lace Trim.
