Heartfelt Wednesday...I've got Goosebumps!

No, not what you think...I got some TSUKENIKO Goosebumps spray a few weeks ago to try out and boy, do I love it!  I used it on the card I'm sharing today and I think I'm going to be using it a lot more in the future. 
The "flecky" background was created by directly applying the Goosebumps spray over a stamped image, then rubbing Ranger distress ink over the top of that.  After wiping away the excess ink with a cloth, what is left behind is something similar to the resist you make with embossing powder...except this is a much more cool "FLECKY" look...SO cool! 
See..Isn't it cool?  Kinda looks like old paper that's been stained by the sun.  But you've gotta FEEL it to believe it...It's slippery and bumpy...very COOL texture! 
Here's the flower I made using some Inka Gold (Love that stuff!) and the petal die.  And take a look at the shape that's under the flower...It's made from black shrink plastic...YUM! 
Here's a close up of the ribbon treatment.  I needed a bit of a rustic feel so I think the black fiber braid and the twine worked well.  Love that wrinkly paper too?  I don't know where it came from.  I thought it was Hanko paper (I LOVE HANKO PAPERS) but I don't think it is.
