Bright flowers

I've been itching to get my hands on the new texture stamp set from The Gentleman Crafter and was delighted when they arrived this week. One of his suggested uses for them is to add interest to die cut flowers, and that's what I've been trying with this card. After cutting, I stamped over each one in pale grey ink, using the round Rough Shader stamp then stamped the large Stippler over that in white ink.

I used the Edger stamp along the bottom of the card to look like foliage and then added ribbons from my huge bag of ribbon oddments to match the die cuts. The flowers are die cut with the Spellbinders Jewel Flowers dies and the leaves with Spellbinders Sprigs

I am sharing this with

Fabulous Jane! What a breath of new life those stamps bring! Sigh, showing out of stock right now, I hope John plans to restock them. Such a great idea.
