I started by stencilling a background onto white card through a stencil. The stencils used are old ones made by Tattered Angels. I chose one and used low tack masking tape to hold it in place. I used Distress Inks in rusty hinge and mustard seed to stencil the background which when heat set was stamped with a Zettiology stamp in Archival black ink. This was trimmed out and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder. I then added a few bits of white Posca pen round the eyes and a touch of pink alcohol ink on the lips with a pen.
I then used a white 5 x 5 inch cardblank and again selected another mask, attached with masking tape and coloured with more distress Inks in crushed olive, rusty hinge, mustard seed and old paper. The inks were added with cut'n'dry foam.
I then selected a corner stamp from Elusive Images and stamped this in each corner of the card with sepia Archival ink, filling in the crocuses with the same pink alcohol ink pen. I then used a Quickie glue pen over the pink crocuses and applied some Glamour Dust for a sparkle.
Some brads were added to the design as shown.
The sentiment is from Papertrey ink and was stamped in Memento black ink on a piece of white card followed by colouring with Distress Inks and once more heat embossing with clear embossing powder.
The central image was placed on foam pads and the sentiment stuck in place as shown.
