Combining Details with Solids

When choosing a wild flower image to stamp over the doily, I looked for something somewhat solid so that the floral image would not get lost in the fine detail of the doily. This allows each aspect of the card to stand on its own. Without matching ribbon, I chose to dye some with the same ink that I used to stamp the flowers. Note that a ribbon dyed with pigment ink will take some time to dry--especially if the weather is quite warm!

Stamps: doily (Magenta), floral (Hero Arts), sentiment (PTI)
Paper: off white cardstock (Staples)
