Clearly Inspired Challenge # 13 - May Flowers

Hi Everyone! I am so happy that I got to spend some time in my craft room yesterday! I finally got to take the ideas I had for the Clearly Inspired Challenge #13 and put them to work. The challenge calls for us to use flowers on our projects, and I love flowers!  At first, I was going to paper piece a flower, but when that failed, I went with option two, which was to stamp the flower image directly on the Basic Grey Kioshi dp and use my new Spring Whispers Tombow markers to highlight the petals. I was so thrilled to see how perfectly the new Paper/Marker/Ribbon collection at Clear Dollar Stamps matches with the Basic Grey Kioshi paper! YAY for matching!
The Details:
Stamps: Peony, Bee-lieve (CDStamps)
Paper: Spring Whispers collection - Cotton Candy, Soft Mint, Lemon Zest(CDStamps), Basic Grey Kioshi
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Markers: Tombow 623: Cotton Candy, 985: Bee Pollen,
925: Tangelo Smoothy, 245: Sweet Pea
Tools/Accessories: Lemon Zest Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Lattice edge punch, Labels 1 Nestabilities
Thank you so much for stopping by! I have more to share with you later on this weekend!
