Sweet Stamps- Flowers

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Flowers.  I made 2 cards with the Victorian Floral Frame Image.

I stamped and embossed the image with Black Fine Detail EP, then colored it with Distress Markers. I added Globecraft and Piccolo accents- I just love the shimmer in the Enamel EP!

 And:

  I just cannot seem to stay away from pinks and blues...... I used Distress Markers and a couple of Copics to color this image. I used the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday- Link Below. I had one of my markers blob out ink on me for the first time ever!
 The DP and cardstock are all SU.

Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store are listed on my post on the SweetStamps challenge Blog HERE

Challenges:
Try Stamping on Tuesday-Sketch
The House that Stamps Built- Embossing
Inky Chicks- Stitching

Our winners are chosen by Random.org- and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your entry will count x's 2!

These are beautiful images, colored just marvelously. I was reminded of the old embroidery motifs that my Mom used to put on pillowcases. I can just imagine the time spent in coloring these small details, and the fine detail EP really allowed the details on the tiny elements to show up so nicely. Loved the colors & layouts on each card! Great work on 2 very lovely cards. TFS & Hugs

Forgot to say: Isn't Whim-so-Doodle such a nice store? There's another - smaller place on Rt 19, (Seminole Blvd) in the town of Seminole. It's more of a scrap store, but has some nice things too, and the folks are friendly. In Whim-so-Doodle, my DH saw a customer using her Mysti, (which I had been waffling about). He didn't know exactly what it was, but thought it was something I'd find interesting. Oh yeah, once I actually saw someone using it (much different than just watching a youtube video!) - I came home and ordered it. Should be delivered in a few days. We're still recovering from our trip, getting house stuff done that accumulated while we were away. And resting! Hope you had a good Easter. Hugs
