1 stamp, 3 ways - glittered chalkboard bloom

Today I'd like to share my 2nd card this week using the Organic Blooms set by Mama Elephant. I love this set and I love the faux chalkboard technique I'm using today!
To create this card, stamp the blooms in Versamark Dazzle.
Trace over the stamped image with a Stardust glitter gel pen. 
Use a cotton swap or your finger to smudge the Stardust ink. Repeat until you love the glittery, chalkboard-like effect.

Stamp bloom again on smooth watercolor cardstock like Bristol and color with Clean Color markers.
Cut out colored flower and 3-D mount over chalkboard.

Create sentiment by layering die cuts. I find a Quickie Glue pen works great for this.
Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Here that same faux-chalkboard technique with white ink and white pen:
