Spring Flowers

A couple of days of sunshine and then rain and grey skies today, but the sunshine had me sorting out my flower stamps and I came across these IndigoBlu daisy stamps that came free with some magazine and as they hadn't been inked up, thought I better do something about it.

I made a background with Wilted Violet and Faded Jeans and some stamping with Denim Adirondack before  using embossing paste and a script stencil. I added White EP and heat set when dry.  I've got a box of empty tea bags that you add your won herbal mixes to, so I tore one open and stamped the Papillion script.  The flowers were stamped and embossed with clear EP, fussy cut and coloured and adhered with foam pads.

I've made a DL sized card which I enjoyed, feels like you're making a tag!

Thanks for calling in, Avril
