Text background

Last night I was commenting on the fabulous creations on the Hero Arts Flickr scramble and saw this card from Lin | quickcard148 | I have been wanting to play with this Leaf and Floral Background stamp again, and LaVon's challenge was perfectly timed!  Using a technique that Cindy first used.  I  stamped it using shaded lilac distress ink, then turned the stamp 180 degrees and stamped it a 2nd time using blueprint sketch distress ink.  The panel was trimmed down, inked along the edges, and attached to a white card base.  My happy die-cut was then sponged with both inks in an omb...:  

Isn't it gorgeous.  I loved how she double stamped the floral stamp.   I decided that I was going to CASE this card.  

I used Catherine Pooler inks - Aquatini and Something Borrowed to make my panel. I used two layers of fun foam to layer it for dimension,  I stamped the Text stamp in the Something Borrowed.  My die cut is from CAS-ual Fridays and I covered it with glossy accents.    I didn't get it photographed in time for the scramble.  Thanks Lin for the inspiration
