Simon Says... Flower Power !

Here is my entry to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, "Flower Power!" 

I don't have any light purple inks - which is weird as I love purple - so I had to improvise: I colored the diecut and the punched flowers with Fuchsia Pink Promarker, and I love how they turned up! I didn't want to "waste" any of my colored paper stocks, as sometimes I mess up those intricate dies and have to throw away the result. I cut the Garden Weave from a regular thick white drawing paper, and did the same with the larger punched flowers, and then colored them in.

The pattern paper and the white paper inside are both shaded with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and the stamp inside is from Kreativ Hobby, stamped with Archival Ink Sienna. The front is sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mists (color: Perfect Pearl). You'll find rest of the supply list below.

  1. Hello Nunt - thanks for popping by my blog! This is really pretty. I did one a bit similar to this not too long ago so I know how long it would have taken you and how fiddly it probably was! Worth the effort though - looks great!

  2. Gorgeous card Nunt! So pretty, I love the effect of the inside stamp "spreading" into the white aperture :)
    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp
