Artful Flowers

Hello, hello...

Playing with new goodies today. It seems all the stamp companies are coming out with a "build a flower" and this one can be done a couple of ways.
You can stamp the main image of the flower then stamp the details of flower directly on top.
You can stamp them like I did above for a more "artsy" look.
I love it!!!

Playing today in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, where they are looking for a Thank You project.

I watercolored the background with several shades of blue.
Main flower was stamped and heat embossed with White. Detailed flower was stamped and heat embossed with Gold, as was the sentiment.
Edges of card front were dragged along a Delicata Golden Glitz ink pad.

Wow! You did a fantastic job on this card! You are right about an abundance of flower sets, but I love the new direction you took with flipping the outline shape a different way from the petals behind it. That gives the flowers such great depth and I adore how everything pops against the blue background. Stunning work with a lot of great techniques here and I'm so glad you shared your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
