Stampendous Saturday HollyHocks

It's Stampendous Saturday and the monthly challenge is all about BLING! I love the new jumbo clings and used the beautiful hollyhock on my project:
This is a sneak peek of the Jumbo Cling Hollyhock stamp from Stampendous.  I stamped it over a new background stamp that gave it a lovely texture. I colored it using a watercolor pencils.  The centers of the flower have a touch of glass glitter in the center for my bling.  The background panel is another jumbo stamp which is embossed using bronze embossing enamel.

These are not in the store yet but will be available soon!

The DT has some fabulous projects to share:

  4. Just your card design and made me like the stamp. Looking at the stamp just did not do it for me. I love the texture look that you did and the coloring is amazing. A nice soft look. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Your cards are drop dead gorgeous and elegant! I really love the Jumbo stamps from Stampendous. Unfortunately, the store doesn't show hollyhocks anymore. Also, I recently bought the Tiger Lily Jumbo cling stamp at a craft store but I can't find that on their site either and I was hoping to find some cards/inspiration on how to use that Tiger Lily stamp.
