More Rubber band exploits

This technique can be quite addictive, for this card I put multiple size bands on a stamp block and versamarked the bands.  I heat embossed clear versamark and sponged distress inks into the mixed media paper.  I love the big splashes of versamark from the larger rubber bands.  I framed the background using a MFT rectangular frame die and inlaid the frame back into the white card.  I die cut the flowers from one of the Tim Holtz wild flower collection and tucked it into the frame.

I'm entering this for the following challenges
