Stamping for the Weekend

All sketches this week and you get to choose at Stamping for the Weekend - what a treat, so I have opted for Donna's sketch.

I stamped my main image - Hobby Arts FL1824G using versafine black and detail clear embossing powder and coloured in with my new Promarkers ........ well after buying all 92 got to get my use out of them and more importantly get the technique right ........ lots of practice required here still me thinks.

DP is from Scrappy Cat and top border cut with MS embossed scallop. The green buds are cut from Cricut Storybook, inked with Brilliance thyme and embossed with detail clear. Flowers have been done exactly the same but using Brilliance orchid and a touch of crimson, although the look very pinky in the photo they aren't that bright in reality, it's probably the reflection because they are embossed and shiny. I have also used the crimson to stamp the greeting which is a tiny section of one of the circle greetings from Woodware FRCL128.
