Pretty in Pastel Oodles of Doodles

This pretty card uses a couple of different techniques to make backgrounds with some of the smaller Oodles of Doodles designs.
The stripy paper is made by brayering a piece of glossy card with Kaleidacolor Birthstone dye inks and was then stamped with the larger of the 2 single flowers in Palette Lavender Sachet ink.
The white tag was stamped with the smaller single flower in Versamark ink and chalked in pink and lilac shades. A little lilac pigment ink was sponged on to finish and the tag was matted on turquoise card and trimmed with deckle edged scissors. A hole was punched in the top and toning stripy ribbon tied through.
The large double flower was stamped on lilac card in Lavender Sachet ink twice and cut out, just the centre of the second flower. The flowers were rounded by rubbing the reverse on a foam mat with a large ball embossing tool.

The card was made up as shown using a white linen textured square card embossed on the right side with a Cuttlebug border folder.
