Summer is Blossoming

...and so are we. At least, we're creating some gorgeous florals with paper and ink over on the challenge blog this week.

Here's my entry:
This pretty peony was coloured with various Tombow markers, spritzed with water, and stamped on to some sugar cardstock. Once I removed my acrylic block, I realised that the flower was a little too undefined. So I went back with the line art image and my stamp-a-ma-jig to make it more "flower" and less "smudge". LOL. The frame was created using some a|s washi tape on a vanilla cardstock base. A little fussy cutting, foam dots, some french roast pearls, a cocoa sentiment and I was done!

Ready for a close up?

The markers I used were: apricot, buttercup, and squash. I really like the way this turned out, so I'll definitely be trying it again soon.

Why don't you ink up your pretty floral stamps and join us? You have until 11:59 pm MST on Saturday, August 10 to link up your project. See you there...

Supplies Used:

Hugs and Kisses.
