Beautiful Blooms at FSC

Hello, It's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and for this month the theme is Beautiful Blooms chosen by Claire.  We have Flonzcraft as our sponsor who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
I decided to use those lovely Cone flowers from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden rubber stamps.  They were stamped in black Archival and then heat set with Clear EP,  I coloured with Distress markers and inks before fussy cutting.  My background was the wrinkle free distress using Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade and Tea Dye DIs. My favourite Papillion script was stamped with Frayed Burlap and then some stenciling with Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo.  I mounted the flower heads with 3D foam pads to add some dimension, before adding the  sentiment which was stamped on a piece of the background card.
The rest of the DT have some  gorgeous makes to inspire you, so please pop over to the main blog .
Just remember, we are a stamping challenge and must see that the main stamping follows the theme
I  am entering this at:
  Stamps and Stencils - Floral Frenzy.
  Take it Make It Challenge - Let's Get Inky
  Penny Black and More - Flower Power
Don't know about you, but I made the most of last weeks sunshine, so glad I did as it's gone!   but the good side of the dull weather is that I'll make the most of it at my craft desk and catch up on blog visiting
Have a great day whatever your weather.

I was admiring how 3D the flowers looked before I even read that they are! Reminded me of the ones growing up our driveway in Libya in the 60's.

Simply beautiful Avril. Such a delicately coloured and stamped background makes the perfect backdrop for those amazing Tim Holtz flowers. I love the deep, rich orange that you've painted them as it really makes them jump off your card. Perfect sentiment too. Take care and enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Crafty hugs, Sandra :)x
