Flower Frenzy

At the weekend I hoiked out some of my under-used flower stamps as I wanted to make a batch of small cards to keep at work for emergencies.

I used two sets of stamps from Clearly Besotted "You Are Wonderful" and "Delightful Day".

Looking at these now, whilst I am pleased with how the colouring went, especially on the tulips and roses, I think next time I shall place them slightly lower down in the vase so they don't look like they are floating.

With apologies for the poor quality photos, these were taken on my phone and had to be tweaked in PIXLR.  My old Nokia takes much better photos but I didn't have it with me at the time.

All three stamps have been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Matting layer from scraps box
Custom sized card bases

Has anyone else had really bad hay fever this year?  Normally I might snuffle for a few weeks, early on, but this time I have been sniffing and coughing for what feels like months!

Anyhoo, that's me done for today.  See you again on Thursday.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

SQUEE! I love these sweet cards. I love your soft coloring Squirrel. Kind of reminds me of the color of Smarties candies.

Beautiful cards and lovely delicate colours.

Hope your hay fever is better soon, we had a nephew who had it so bad, his eyeballs were swollen. He's older now and just seems to have it slightly, a VERY unpleasant allergy.
