Colour Q Anniversary...

Hi there,

Sorry for my absence over the last week - I've had exams and been working on other stuff but it's now half term so pressure's off a little! I wanted to play along with this week's Colour Q challenge as well as another CPS anniversary sketch so I came up with this:

I got this hostess stamp set this week and decided to get it inky straight away. I stamped the flower twice for each bloom and then added shading with Poppy Parade ink and a blender pen. The centres were cut out and popped up for added dimension. I layered the flowers on a die-cut circle from the Perfect Pennants die and added some Peach Parfait swirls.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Array of Sunshine, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade
Paper: Poppy Parade, Regal Rose, Peach Parfait, Whisper White
Accessories: Rhinestones, word window punch, Perfect Pennants die, Scribbles & Swirls die, vintage wallpaper embossing folder

Thanks for stopping by!
