We want to see flowers!!!

Good morning, another week has flown past, spring will soon be here! It's felt quite springlike here already for the last couple of days...mild weather, some sunshine and the first bulbs are starting to flower...can't wait! This week's challenge at Sweet Stampin'is a lovely and easy one, we want to see flowers on your creations, they don't have to be stamped as long as you include some stamping somewhere on your card. I loved making this card, a CAS design for a change, using a very old and much loved wooden stamp, I stamped the flower directly onto the  card blank near to the top left hand corner, then masked the image and stamped twice more letting it go over the edge. I then stamped the flower onto the smaller piece of white card, carefully lining up the image so that the flowers matched. Matted the smaller square onto deep blue cardstock, then placed it over the first image. The colouring was very quick, using a wet brush and distress ink pads. The stamped sentiment was a freebie with a magazine.

If you want to feast your eyes on some beautiful floral creations just hop over here and check out the inspiration from my lovely teamies. Then it's your turn to inspire us with your own fabulous florals!
Thanks for visiting, have a happy weekend!
