Summer Bouquet


Hi everyone.  I was inspired to make this card by the Addicted to Stamps & More photo challenge this week ...




Love those bright and beautiful gerbera daisies. :)  I used a flower stamp from Penny Black, stamped it twice onto mixed media paper, and coloured in with my Zig Watercolour pens.  They are so bright and vibrant.  I fussy-cut them out and tied my "bouquet" together with a small piece of raffia to finish.  A few of the background flowers are adhered flush to the card front, and a few are popped up for added dimension.  I used a sentiment from a second Penny Black stamp set.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes, where they are highlighting Penny Black stamps.  I do LOVE PB and have many of their sets. :)
