Enjoy Life

The Bright Blossoms collection offers beautiful photos of flowers and is perfect for this time of year where in the Midwest in the U.S. we are still experiencing cold and snow.

 I stamped the Stone background using the Stone Background Stamp and black ink on white cardstock.  I distressed the edges of the flower and added a hint of white acrylic paint to the image.

I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Garden Collage using black ink and colored with watercolor pencils.  I added the words Enjoy Life to the tag from the lovely Enjoy Life stamp set.  

 I created a second tag using the Bright Blossoms Filmstrip:

I used the Corrugated Iron Background Stamp on the background stamped in gray ink on the white cardstock.  I cut out and distressed the edges of the flower images.  I cut out the letters from the Venetian Wordstrip and attached them to the flowers. I punched a few butterflies from the other flowers to add a nice pop of color on each flower.

Have a lovely day,

Suzz
