I used another of my vintage looking prima stamps, arent they an adorable pair. I stamped again on watercolor paper and used my watercolor pencils to color them. Then I distressed everything with antique linen. The background paper I made using the wax paper method I saw on youtube along with distress inks.  The sentiment is from Hampton Arts, I pop dotted it up onto three pieces of colorbok paper. I took a circle punch and added red liner tape to it and put this piece of lace around it and put a pink rose in the middle. Then I added some bunny and a button brad.
