More Flowers!!

More fun with my new stamps and I have also dusted off an old Hero Arts stamp for this card.  The challenge at A Blog Named Hero this month is One Layer.  First I masked off the edges of a card blank with low tack masking tape.  Next I stamped and white embossed the Old Letter stamp from HA , I then over stamped in Black ink the flower stamp from Tim Holtz. Next I distessed the masked square with Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade and finally roughly coloured the flower designs with distress ink and a cotton bud. I then removed my masking tape and added the Hero Arts sentiment.

I was so pleased with how the card worked out that I made another square but this time cut it out and layered on white then fushia card before adding the vellum and card background.   I am adding this card to the Simon Says "New " Challenge.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Wow, these are just GORGEOUS - love the approach of using the same design of the past with different stamps!
