Flower Silhouette

It's once again time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge!  The theme for the new challenge is Floral or Handmade Flowers or both.  I was excited to ink up my newly acquired stamp from Stampington.  Beginning with a specialty paper panel, I sprayed the paper with several Dylusions Ink Sprays before adding the stamp image with Black StazOn Ink.  The stamped panel was matted with white and black papers and mounted to a card base.  Where there are flowers, there are bees, so I added several! Simple embellishments include black Liquid Pearls, metallic thread, black crochet lace and scraps of vintage paper.  I hope you will stop by FSC to check out all the brilliant projects my design team sisters have prepared for you.  Won't you join the fun and add your own creation to FSC for a chance to win a wonderful prize?  Best wishes, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne.
Gee, the dylusional inks look fantastic with the silhouette image. Very striking. And I love the black and white matting that highlights everything perfectly. The bees just made me giggle...such a great embellie!
