Flourishes in my Little Red Wagon


Like I said yesterday, I managed to complete a whole bunch of challenges - after the madness of the Mother's Day blitz I really needed a list to know what to do next. I knew I wanted to ink up this gorgeous Gerbera Daisies stamp from Flourishes again (I'll share my first card at the end - I never did get a chance to post it before Mother's Day) and thought their Timeless Tuesday challenge of "green & blue" this week would be a perfect way to do that. I'm also linking up over at little red wagon because I've used one of my crochet mats, which I think counts as a doily.


Supplies: Gerbera Daisies stamp from Flourishes; paper from Memory Box; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Spectrum Noir, Bic, and Sharpie markers; Sakura Stardust clear glitter pen; classic small oval & lacy circle Nesties; crochet mat - available here.

It took far too long to colour these. I don't particularly want to talk about it.
I trimmed the three darker blue flowers, and the top aqua one, and adhered them with a tiny bit of glue, bending up the petals for a bit of dimension.

And here's the first card I made with this stamp - 


Once again, linking up the first card to these two challenges:

Jessi

These are both so pretty, Jessi! I don't know, I think almost all images take too long to colour. :)

Beautiful cards love the big flowers and you did a great job with the coloring even if it did take a long time. Really like the crochet doily behind the image .
