Simple flowers

I've had a busy day crafting today - I can't share much of what I've made yet as I was trying to get ahead with some DT stuff, but I also stamped lots of these images in different colours using a Hero Arts stamp...



So far only this one has made it onto a card - will use the others another day.  The colours are quite pale and delicate and unfortunately look a bit washed out in the pics.  I inked up the stamp with Memento inks in 'new sprout', 'summer sky' and 'lulu lavender' and then sprayed it with water before stamping - my fave technique again, makes me happy lol :o)  I used 'summer sky' to ink around the panel and then mounted it on a layer of white card.  The gingham is a scrap of Pink Petticoat (printed on linen) that's been hanging around in my scraps for ages.  The sentiment is also Pink Petticoat.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Just a quick note to let you know about the Weekend Specials at The Stamp Basket - this weekend there's 10% off MME paper pads and selected Prima paper pads.

I'll be back tomorrow morning with my DT card for Sweet Stampin', hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
