First, I “wet” the raised side of the Hexagon TIEF with Hello Honey. I laid my 4″ x 5.25″ inch Whisper White paper down on it and pressed it down to make a light impression. Then I took the fern leaf stamp and Old Olive Ink to the paper making a background. Second, I stamped the flowers on a 2.5″ x 4.5″ piece of Whisper White in Memento “Rich Cocoa” (not available through Stampin’ Up!, unfortunately).  I hand colored with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities. Third, I stamped with the little honeycomb stamp and Hello Honey the bottom of the flower piece. I backed it with Early Espresso, stamped my butterflies and sentiment and attached with dimensionals. See below for product pictures.
