New challenge at the Stamp Man

The new challenge at the Stamp man is up and the theme is The Colors of Spring. I used one of the new stamp sets I bought from The Stamp Man just before Christmas. I love the big flower and the fancy gate like border. I stamped and embossed the flower with obsidian Saphire EP and coloured using Ramblin Rose Starburst stain. I then went over the flower using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress ink on the edges. The flower is then cut out and layered 3 times. The leaves are handcut and crumpled. the are colored using Edelweiss Moss Green Starburst stain. The Background is inked using Tim holtz Broken China distress ink and the Ramblin Rose Starburst stain with baby wipes. The border is stamped and embossed using Stampendous Fran-tage Aged Black Embossing Enamel .

There are lots more great Samples on the Stamp Man blog made by my uber talented team mates. Please do check them out then link up your creation.

I hope we have inspired you. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Angela

Hi Angela, hope everyone is well. All I can say is WOW that flower certainly makes a statement and looks wonderful with the fancy border. Love the mixed beads in the middle they look really tactile. Have a great weekend. :-) xx

This is a fabulous flower Angela. I love the way you have layered it to give it dimension and it pops so beautifully with the blue background and gorgeous border stamp.
Have a great weekend.
