Pile It On! Challenge - Flowers

We have a new Pile It On! Challenge starting today, with a nice and easy theme:

'Flowers'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Dilly Beans Digi Stamps:
Prize - 3 Dilly Beans Digi Stamps!

After rediscovering a couple of old flower stamps ('Scribble Flower' and 'Sketch Flower' by Funstamps) a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd get them out again. I started by stamping them in Versamark, and embossing them using clear powder, before blending various Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade & Festive Berries) over the top, then spritzing with water. I then cut the panel into quarters and mounted them on to my card blank using 3D foam pads.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
