My inspiration today comes from Debbie Olson, a very talented stamper that I gain insight from often.  She has been using Liquid Applique on her recent projects, and I decided it was about time for me to find mine and play around with it.  I utilized the Liquid Applique in the centers of my flowers for this simple invitation.  One of my favorite things to do is chalk it after it has "risen" and been heat set.  I love how the chalk goes down into all of the nooks & crannies.  The color really brings out the texture.  I also tied ribbon around the "stems" of the flowers.  I do not like large holes to show where the ribbon has been inserted, so I just make two slits (one on either side of the stem) with a craft knife.  I then can bring the ends of the ribbon up and around the stem and tie into place.
