Fifth Avenue Features Tina

The Featured Stamper at SCS this week is Tina Hale (aka tinahale38).  I browsed her gallery with my UFO box in mind and chose this card so I find a home for this flower.



Actually it was 2 flowers from the retired Fifth Avenue Floral set.  I want to try this technique with some of the flowers from the Secret Garden set.  I need to use these up first though.

The flowers were stamped with Whisper White on Shimmery White cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I wet the flower all over with my Aqua Painter, picked up some re-inker with the same Aqua Painter and touched the tip to the wet flower and moved it around a bit.  After it dried, I fussy cut it out.  I did quite a few of this and the other flowers in the set so you may be seeing more of them this summer as I try to use my UFOs.

Addicted to Stamps and More! is having an Anything Goes challenge this week.

Hi Bonnie. The flower is to pretty. Have the same stamp set, which I have used a lot for the rose and tiger lily, but have only inked this stamp for one card ... you've inspired me to dig it out! Love combination of colors. Love the new, soft brown from SU! and will have to buy it! ... thanks for enabling! :) Loll xx
