I stamped the solid piece from Everything Eleanor and then using the Apothecary Accents dies I cut it out. Of course the die is smaller than the stamp set, so this allows you to choose where you want the discolourations from the stamp set. This piece was lifted using dimensionals and then the swirl and the "birthday wishes" were adhered under that.
I stamped two flowers and cut them out, sponging the edges when finished. One of the flowers I used underneath the other to accent the bottom layer leaf. With a portion of that flower I also shave cut or feather cut the stamens for the flower and adhered them with Tombow glue.
I love this sketch I think that there are so many possibilities. To see just how many possibilities there are hop on over to the Try Stampin website and see for yourself. While you are there, don't forget to post your idea for this great sketch. See you there.
