Since the white base was so white, I wanted to bring out the blue in the fake stamps and used a textured blue card, then found an interesting green/brown for another layer. I taped the ribbon/paper layer on top of this card stock and then added the pewter brads before sticking to the blue. I also layered card stock behind the stamp stickers and used decorative scissors to give it a more stamp like look.
I like this a whole lot more than the original but I still think it lacks something to make it pop. And it certainly didn't need that little clump of kitty hair at the top-courtesy of Loki!
ETA-forgot to add that I drizzled a little Dimensional Glaze over the middle stamp. That is why it looks a bit fuzzy.
