Think and Wonder

This little sweetheart and the sentiment are from the stamp sheet Think and Wonder. I just love the innocent look in her eyes. I used the Patchwork technique from The June/July Technique Junkies newsletter. The background was colored with distress inks and then waterstamped using the large background stamp from Ephemeral Backgrounds. The image is somewhat muted; the water against the distress inks works somewhat like stamping with bleach. The flower is made of two white silk flowers. The larger was stamped with the background stamp in black ink. The middle smaller flower was stamped and painted. Faux stitches were used to faux sew the sections of the patchwork together.
