Spring fever (a little early)

I guess I still have warmer weather on the brain.  For this card, I used another Unity stamp.  I colored the stamp itself with Copic markers, spritzed it with Copic blending solution (don't spritz the Adirondack Alcohol Blending Solution - I have been told it has a resin in it that will clog your lungs), and stamped directly onto the paper.  I came back and colored in the petals a bit more with Copic markers.  For the centers, I applied adhesive and Diamond Dust to give it a chunky, shimmery look.  I also used nestabilities to cut out and emboss my oval. 

For the background paper, I used a technique where you combine Perfect Pearls and spray starch to create a really cool look.  If you want details of how to do that, just leave a comment and I'll get back to you.  I also used a template to paper pierce a design in the paper and added a small bow to finish it off.
