Reminder Post The Flower Challenge #27 Use an Old Stamp or Die


It's time for some more inspiration for our latest challenge. I missed the deadline for the start of the challenge having picked up some bug that put me out of action for a short time. Luckily there are so many wonderful ladies on the Design Team with inspiration for you it didn't cause a problem.

I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who will recognise this stamp from Hero Arts 'Delicate Blossoms' and it comes with this flower group and a smaller group. I couldn't find a link for Hero Art store but lots of other places had it. 
It is in with some of the first flower stamps I bought. I find it so easy to colour whether Copic or pencil or watercolour and always turns out perfectly. In this instance I have coloured with Copics and finished off with some Wink of Stella.

Check out the sparkle.  I have then added to the card base.

It was slightly narrower than the card base and rather than cut the base down I added some white and gold washi tape on the left. Finished the card off with the 'Awesome' die cut in gold mirror card with a vellum layer and a few sequins from a pretty mix of browns/pinks.


Now its time to go and check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team and get some amazing inspiration. I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.

That is a beautiful image and so fun to color! I love how you've colored and winked it, Aileen, and I think the gold accents of the border and sediment fit it perfectly! I hope you are doing well and I wish you all the blessings of the holiday season and new year!! 🎄Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell

Such a pretty card, Aileen. Thanks so much for your recent visits to my blog and the lovely comments. I really appreciate them. So sorry it's taken me forever to reply to you re: the white gel pen. I too have struggled with them. Right now I am using a Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip 1.0mm. and it's the best one I've tried so far. I leave my ink, or copic colouring to dry for an hour or so before I use it, then scribble on some scrap paper just to get it flowing. Then I find that a bold and quick line works best ( but not applying too much pressure). Hope that helps.
Merry Christmas xxx
