OK so it's confirmed I am fickle when it come to floral stamps !
I have been lusting over the Altenew sets for ages and kept telling myself I already had more floral stamps than I know what to do with, until yesterday that is when I received a mail from My Mums Craft Shop saying some were back in stock. It took me a nano second to order and today the first set arrived, that was the Beautiful Day sent and this morning when another mail arrived I weakened and ordered the Peony Bouquet........well they were the two sets I had my eye on for weeks.
So I had a lovely session playing and they are such fun to work with, the concept of the four layers is so clever and makes the most glorious multi shaded blooms. I used a mixture of Distress Inks and Adirondack dye inks and am really pleased with the tonal results.
I am using the one above for another entry into the current Butterfly Challenge where the theme is Butterflies of course and A for Aperture or Apricot. And also Di's Snippets Playground.........the orange mat has lots of holes in it from die cutting sentiments so I figured it qualifies as a snippet.
I stamped the central bloom then masked it to stamp the next two, masked all three and stamped the leaves and tiny flowers which all come in the set. The sentiment is Visible Image and the little Butterflies made with a punch.
Here's another one using shades of blue and purple and I quite like the contrast and depth the deeper colours give. I have so many colour combinations I want to try and can see these keeping me occupied for weeks and you will probably be totally fed up with seeing them soon.
Enjoy the rest of your day everyone.
