Sweet Peas

I LOVE flowers. Real life and stamps!! When I saw this Sweet Peas image by Flourish, I was in love. Michelle kept selling out of them at Stamper's Dream, though, so I never got a chance to use it until now. If you like this image you might want to get it very soon though, because they sell quickly. She'll also have the new Flourishes releases available on Friday. So stop by the store!!

The Sweet Peas were stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Neenah Natural White and were colored with copics. I stamped the Sweet Pea sentiment with Smokey Gray (Versafine), and ink distressed all the edges with Old Paper (Ranger Distress Ink).

edit to add: I was asked what copics I used...well, here's the list:
BV13 - Hydrangea Blue
B63 - Light Hydrangea
B60 - Pale Blue Gray

G99 - Olive
YG63 - Pea Green
G21 - Lime Green

I highlighted with W1 - Warm Gray

It's almost Friday!! Happy Dance!!
Happy Stamping my friends!!
Tosh

Oh my word. Would you look at all those delicious layers? And how about that impecable sewing? Or that precious image? And the sentiment - did you check out that sentiment? My goodness this is beautiful! It looks like a lot of time and care went into this card and it shows like winner! You get a blue ribbon for this one. They give out blue ribbons for farm animals and pies too, don't they?
