Starting on a dark colored background from your stash can give you such a striking contrast between dark and light.
Do the steps of stamping with a stamping tool. Stamp the flower image and bleach the image itself. Stamp it again and heat emboss with clear. Color the image with watered down white and green acrylic paint. Make a mask of the stamped image and cover the stamped image with it. Stamp a script and heat emboss in white.
