Stone Soup...

The stone soup story tells how you start with a stone in a bucket of water and keep adding things until you get soup. Well this card started like that. :)

This started from an inked background which I honestly don't remember if I used my glimmer mists or ranger dye re-inkers on acetate to make.
  1. Apply bleach on acetate and ink(bleach?) a flourish stamp and stamped randomly over the background.
  2. Ink flower stamp and dragonfly with StazOn and stamp over the background.
  3. Sponge green dye ink randomly.
  4. Versamark the entire surface and emboss using incadescent embossing powder.
  5. Repeat the process for the sentiment background.
  6. Stamp sentiment on vellum.
