The background is a large Recollections stamp embossed with white and then blended over with Distress Inks. I used the texturing technique on the fish using Copic blender over a piece of terry cloth and dabbed over the colored image. The image is fussy cut and popped up over another die cut waves and ribbon.
I used two different flower pattern papers from My Mind's Eye paper pad, Happy Day. The lace on the top and bottom is from my stash as is the flower that I made long ago, so I don't remember which set was used to cut it. I added a soft yellow pearl to the center.

My collection of Paper Smooches stamps and dies is growing. This month, on the Paper Smooches Challenge, it's all about flowers! I love flowers and had to have this die called simply Roses. I prepared a background panel using Distress Oxide inks with a stencil, sprayed with water, to top it. The sentiment was die cut from the Hugs & Kisses, The Hugs is popped up, and the second part of the sentiment is inside the card. Finally, I added some of my newest favorite embellishment, clear Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp and a simple gold thread.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

The base is from a Darice Snow Globe die, oval and triangle dies from Paper Smooches, Simon Says border waves for blue scallop, and polka dot banner die from C.C. Designs. Papers are from Echo Park, Fine and Dandy pack. The image was popped and a "crowd" was added with Copics. The finishing touch was to add some Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I used my newest favorite technique for the background. An embossed , colored with Copics on the debossed areas, and swiped over with Distress inks. I added a piece of Washi tape in blue to match the little bird. The bird was textured with corduroy and colorless blender with the addition of Copic Multiliners. I added a bit of clear gel pen to the feet, beak, and chocolate frosting.
