Life is the Flower

Greetings and thank you for stopping by today! There's a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, the challenge theme is "Beautiful Blooms." Perfect for June! I chose to ink up this Donna Downey Poppy Flower Stamp by Unity Stamps. It is huge at 7" tall.  I stamped it onto watercolor paper after inking the stamp with TomBow Markers.  I outlined the flowers with black ink to give them more definition and added a bit more color to some of the blooms.  The little fairy girl is by Red Lead Paperworks and was stamped onto the panel and watercolored with TomBow Markers, as well.  The sentiment is by Oxford Impressions. Texture was added with Black embossing paste through stencils, all by Wendy Vecchi. Scraps of torn book page were added and then the piece was matted and mounted to a card base. Finished size is 8" x 8."
I hope you will stop over to the inspiration pieces of the rest of the design team and then make a piece of your own to share with us.  One lucky participant will win a gift voucher from our sponsor, Flonzcraft.  Please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so stamping needs to be the focal point of your piece. Full details are available over at FSC.
Thanks for stopping by.  I truly enjoy your comments. Best, Yvonne

I love the magical feel this has to it Yvonne...with the fairy under the tall poppies. And the stenciling made me smile - mine never looks that neat. A really great make!
