More fresh cuts and no more brace face!

There is nothing like a brand new stamp set to bring out your creativity! So I pulled out the new Fresh Cuts set again today to see what else I could do with it. I really like the collage look of this main image. I stamped it in blue bayou classic ink, sponged the edges with soft sky, and when that wasn't quite enough I dragged the image across the stamp pad. I colored the flowers with a real red marker and did the leaves with a mellow moss marker. It doesn't really show in the picture but I added some highlights with the white gel pen.

What I used:
Fresh Cuts stamp set
Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Whisper White card stock
Soft Sky Prints designer paper
Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon
Large and small oval punches, ticket corner punch
Real Red and Mellow Moss Stampin' Write markers, white Signo gel pen
sponge

Now I gotta do some braggin' on my kid. Daniel has had his braces on for FOUR long years. So... drum roll please...........
tada!
$3700
24 payments
42 office visits
7 emergency (I popped off a bracket Mom) ortho appointments
5 missed appointment (what can I say, I am loosing my mind)
427 million tiny rubber bands
Big bright shiny smile.................PRICELESS!

Isn't he pretty? The mug and balloons were given to him by his orthodontist and is filled with all the chewy sticky things that he wasn't supposed to have eaten for the last 4 years.
