Continuing with the flower obsession.
So a little bit ago, I won a blog candy at Allison's blog of some new stamps from the Little Paper Shop! Well, I got them the other day and one of the shapes looked sort of like a flower (maybe it is?) anyway, I decided that it would be a flower and so I thought a while on how to do it. I stamped it in some spring-y colors but it really wasn't thrilling me so I picked up my Earth elements stamp pads and went through to find some that I thought would layer well. I picked Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust. I also decided that I needed a dark color and while the Chocolate Chip was too dark, my Close to Cocoa was juuuust right. The only thing was, I couldn't decide what to do to get a stem. I cut out some ribbon and that didn't work for me. So I just drew in a stem with a prisma pencil. :D The colors of the flower went well with some Basic Grey archaic papers but the extreme whiteness of the image area just wasn't making me happy with the brightness so I sponged over it with some Distress Ink from Ranger.
While it took me a while to figure out everything that was going wrong with my plan, I'm fairly pleased with the outcome.
Thanks for stopping by here today!
