I started with the new STAMPlorations ARTplorations Flexi-Template squares. If I label the components of the flexi-template squares, starting with the full square as one, the next size as two, and so on. I picked out number two and number four templates (leaving the space between, which is the size of number three template, for inking). I started with a 4.25" x 4.25" white cardstock square. I adhered the templates with post-it tape, using template three as a space holder to position number four template. I added cracked pistachio distress ink with an ink blending tool to the space between the two templates. I wanted a bit more interest. I used STAMPlorations ARTplorations Flair stencil with peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon distress inks, applied with ink blending tools, to add some detail to the area. Here's a close-up.
For the sentiment, I used STAMPlorations Say it Big: Do What You Love stamp with Hero Arts pale tomato ink. I trimmed the panel down to 3.75" x 3.75", matted with a light teal and adhered it to a 4.25" x 4.25" white card base.
