Ring of Flowers

Yaaaay! I've just seen that I was one of the Top Picks at Sunday Stamps, so a big "Thank You" to Marie, and the DT. 

Well the weather stopped play for me today, but I'm glad it did, as instead of doing the gardening, I made this card. Looking for flowers, I turned to my favourite stamp set of the moment, Apothecary Art from SU.

I am entering into the following challenges:

The sketch is from Sunday Stamps,

the colours from ColourQ,


the Paper Players have a theme of clean and simple

and lastly, Less is More also have a theme of 

I coloured the flowers with my Aqua Painter and SU Markers, and fussy cut it before laying it on turquoise card that I also cut by hand. I pieced the sentiment together using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, and placed some tiny gems on the added butterfly.

Supplies :
Card - Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, and base FMS
Stamps - Apothecary Art and Papillon Potpourri
Inks - Black Archival, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade, and Melon Mambo
Tools - Aqua Painter, Big Shot, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Fancy Fan EF, Fiskars Scissors, and Butterfly Punch
Extras - 3D Pads and Gems

I must get a new daylight bulb for the lamp in my study/craft room, as the photos taken with my old camera are quite dark, so I apologise if the colours don't look quite right. Either that, or I must find time to do my photos and posting earlier in the day!

Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you all have a good weekend.
