Chinese Lanterns with a Textured Frame Background

For my last sample with these stamps, I created a frame from the matching mixed impressions texture stamps to go with Barbara's floral spray topper.
Using the 5.25” nested square picot die cut a topper from a 7” x 7” kraft card blank.
Stamp Barbara’s Floral Spray onto the topper in Versamark ink and heat emboss in white.
Stamp the heads of the Chinese Lanterns using the smaller stamps from the set in Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide.
Lay the stencil over the top and colour the leaves and stems with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide and a Pergamano blending pen and nib. Add Ripe Persimmon Oxide to the tiny flowers.
Cut a frame from stencil card using the same nested square picot die as before and the next size down. Add the frame to the topper.
Stamping directly onto the front of a 7” x 7” kraft card blank create a frame using the A6 Chinese Lantern mixed impression stamps and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide.
Add the smallest stamp from the same set to the frame four times in Versamark ink and heat emboss in detail white powder.
Add the topper to the front of the card.
To finish, add a couple of Barbara’s word stickers.
