Hels Sheridan runs weekly challenges on her blog and this week I decided to get involved. The theme is Stamped Flowers and it immediately made me think of the very first stamp set I bought - a beautiful set of floral stamps from Anna Griffin.
I don't generally think of myself as a flowery person - but I think I might be wrong! I LOVE Anna's designs (which are mostly florals) and since buying the stamps I've become a bit of an Anna Griffin addict buying pretty much any of her stamps or paper packs.
I've used a few of the stamps over the past year but decided that for this challenge I would use all of them. On one card.
The black and white flowers were stamped, cut out and then layered onto a plain 6x6 card that I stamped 'In a Garden of Friends, Happiness Grows.' I matted that onto black card, and then framed it with the silver mica flakes (I LOVE mica flakes), matted it onto more black card and then attached it to the front of an 8x8 card.
Because it seemed to need more flowers(!) I did some more stamping, colouring and cutting to make the frame.
I really like both, and change my mind about every 2 minutes about which one is my favourite!
