I first stamped the largest posy 3 times, then the middle one 7 times, and the smallest 6 times all in buckaroo blue and stamped them on the light blue design paper that is used on my card. Next I glued them together using the dries clear glue and then added gala glitz to the centers. I used foam square on the bottoms of all the flowers. for my oval I stamped my sentiment in tim holtz distressed ink walnut stain and then airbrushed with E55 Light camel copic.
