Say It With Flowers

I had a sort through all my stamped images a few weeks ago to see what I had and probably what I could do with. Most of the images are from stamp swops, RAK's or ones that I've had for ages. Not sure where this image came from but decided that it fitted the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this is:

Say It With Flowers

I've coloured it with Aquamarkers as I like the richness they give and I find they are a lot quicker to use than Promarkers! The sky wash has been done with watercolours. I've rounded the corners, added some tiny half pearls and used some of the never ending Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Up ribbon and a hat pin that I made myself.

The papers are a freebie pack I got a while ago from a craft magazine - My Minds Eye, Pretty Please Spring Papers 6x6 stack.

  • Ribbon: Tempting Turquoise - Stampin' Up
  • Everything else: My stash
