Blooming Blossoms


Hello peeps, it's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week so no surprise that there are some flowers about and the theme I have come up with is "Blooming Blossoms" and gain I could have made a few dozen for this theme, buy here are just a couple.

I am trying to get round to you all one by one, only a few words here and there and if I've not got to you yet apols, this could take time !

The one above uses some of the gorgeous new Scribble Scrabble DP which happened to make it's way to me from Sir Stampalot and Hero Arts CL449 Delicate Blossoms which I stamped onto a background created with TH olive and stormy sky inked onto my silicone mat, spritzed with water, swishing a piece of watercolours card through it then a spray of Glimmer Mist graphite. I stamped again onto the reverse of the PG to paper piece and decoupage.

And I thought it only right that I did a card with Penny Black 3064K Cherry Blossoms. A very simple and clean cut card, stamping directly onto the base card, a little colouring with Copics, some pounced flowers and flutterby, pearls and a Stamping Up sentiment.
