I've coveted the Holtz coneflower stamp (and die) for some time. On Saturday I had the privilege to hop into Joann's as it was next to WinCo where we went to get some bulk foods. They had their typical spend $35 get $5 off, also a 60% off a single full priced item. Holtz is now bundling a flower stamp set with a stencil. I chose it to be my full price item. I also bought some paper, ink and empty spritzer minis. I haven't researched if the flower die is an actual match, that can come later.
Once home I immediately stamped the coneflower using another new item, one of four metallic inks I also purchased - Brilliance Dew Drops. That random stamp ended up turning into a cute artistic card. The sentiment that it comes with double stamped on me (that's what I get for NOT breaking out my MISTI),and I liked how it looked. I added a light blue "sky" ombre effect as well as some watercolor distress stampings, a zigzag and a heart, they came from A Stampin' Up set. I used the stencil that came with it for more depth. I used Distress Inks and Distress Markers for the color. The DSP is from Core'Dinations and was $2 per pack at Joann's. I distressed the edges of the white and DSP and also left it vertical on my A2 card.
