I fell in love with this frame/floral image from the new Framed Florals stamp set.  First, I white heat embossed my floral frame.  Then, I decided to watercolor my image with a few Distress Inks real "messy-like" and then trimmed out my image by hand.

I layered this over a panel of vellum and a very light gray pattern paper.  Just wish you could see this in person!  For a little extra detail, I added tiny tiny drops of Glossy Accents!!
