Flowers that Bloom

I have been busy this weekend playing with new stamps!  I love new stamps.  I can't share anything of course, yet. :) But I did squeeze in a fun tag using some of my favorite Hero Arts flowers.


I created the tag from corrugated cardboard.  I tore up the surface, painted with white and sand colored acrylic paint. I cut a piece of Bo Bunny paper for my background to stamp on.  I stamped the Hero Arts Fleurette several times using brown ink.  The image didn't stamp clearly so I pulled out my Sakura pen with the fine tip in brown and filled in where I had lost parts of my image. (A little tip if you have an image that is hand drawn or etched) I stamped the lovely Verses Rubber stamps quote using brown ink.

I finished it off with a few Hero Arts butterflies from the Papillion set.  The flowers and butterflies are colored with Memento Lilac Posies Dye ink.

This is for the current Hero Arts challenge of Fabulous Flowers and the Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes. and the Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Bingo (Flowers, Distressing, Words).


Have a lovely Monday!
