Floral Frenzy - SDC34

YES! More flowers, and today I have a "new to me flower technique" to share!  Gez is your hostess for the Stampotique Designers Challenge, and she is challenging you to use flowers on your creation.  This weeks challenge is open to "any" stamp company, but remember you can only enter once.  Play along for your chance to win a $30 Stampotique gift certificate - complete details as well as inspiration from the other Design Team members can be found here.

I'm not sure what I was thinking when I looked over the upcoming SDC themes and didn't pick out some floral images.  Not one to back down from a challenge, I set out to create some flowers.  No big deal right, stampers are creative, well I wanted to do something a little different, so I tried my hand at these fab Kick Ass Flowers. I just love the way these turned out.

For Inspiration I used the MoJo Monday Sketch #199, incorporating the leftover scraps of Basic Grey Out of Print papers I used earlier this week.  Don't you just love the Stampotique Sentiment!  The butterfly is also cut from TSS Metal, I added some Alcohol Ink to give it a bit of color.

Details:
Stamps - Stampotique - When I'm Old
Ink - Ranger Black Archival
Card Stock - White, Black, Pink
Other - Spellbinders Circle Dies, EK Success Punch, Seam Binding, Stick Pins, TSS Metal, Hammer, Texture Fades Folder, Basic Grey Out of Print. Cheery Lynn Butterfly Die, Seambinding
