My Incentive Trip swap

Thanks to Jayne, who emailed me a pic of my swap from Incentive Trip, so I could show you all. We had to use In Colours, so of course I chose blues and greens...very me! Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi.
I used a stamp from "True Friend" (in the Spring Mini) to stamp a background in Soft Sky ink on Soft Sky cardstock. The main image is also from True Friend. I inked it in Soft Sky ink, and then carefully inked the stem using my Wild Wasabi inkpad, and the tips of the flowers using my Blue Bayou inkpad. I did some paper piercing in the corner to balance out the design, and tied some Blue Bayou stitched ribbon around the bottom. The Blue Bayou panel on the right is actually textured cardstock. I stamped the tiny flower from "Season of Joy" (also in the mini) on it using Versamark ink. Even though the cardstock is textured, it still stamps up well, especially if you use Versamark. I mounted this on Wild Wasabi, and then punched out a Large Oval. The whole panel has been popped up using Dimensionals. The sentiment 'best wishes' is from my favourite, and most-used greeting set, "Short and Sweet". I punched it out with the Small Oval punch, and also popped it up on Dimensionals, inside the large oval hole.
I received some lovely swaps on the trip... everyone went to so much effort. I hope they all liked mine too!
