Miss You was created by incorporating a number of dies from Spellbinders (Timeless Rectangles, Creative Page Tabs, and a JustRite exclusive die) along with three of the rubber stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle's stamp set Silhouettes. Although there are flower pot dies available, I didn't have one so I cut out my own and colored it with Copic markers.
In order to create the bouquet of flowers, I colored directly onto the stamp with Distress Markers and then stamped onto white cardstock. I stamped second and third generations (stamping multiple times without reinking) so that my petals would be in very soft pastels. Then I fussy cut each stem out and arranged it behind the flower pot. I also added Cloud Nine glitter to each of the petals for a hint of sparkle. The sentiment is heat embossed with Tuscan Star embossing powder onto one half of a tab.
To achieve the background, several Distress Inks (Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, and Spiced Marmalade) were randomly blended onto kraft paper and then die cut with the Timeless Rectangles die. The Just Rite die cut is the mat for the flower pot and is distressed with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.
