Wildflowers NBUS

Hi there.

I have used another NBUS stamp for
Darnell's NBUS Challenge
It's the last day of this challenge and I've got to say that not only is there an amazing gallery
of inspiration, but Darnell has made us laugh every day of this challenge.  And somehow in these
times and tragedies, we need to remember to add laughter along with the tears.
This is my 3rd and final entry.

Sadly or gladly there are still many more NBUS items in that box.

This one had been in there for a long time.

The flowers were stamped twice, the second time on a scrap.

After coloring both sets, with watercolor pencils and blending with a Blender Pen,
I fussy cut those on the scrap, shaped with a bone folder and
adhered over the others with dimensionals.
The picture doesn't show the dimension very well but they really stand out.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Definitely we need the laughter and reminder of good people in these crazy times we live in of late. Love the way you've done the penciled flowers and like the look of them peeping outside that pretty frame. Love this die. Also like the way you've treated the stamens and your pencil coloring skills are just as awesome as your watercoloring! Hugs & Happy wkend.

What a great design idea for those fun blooms, Bon-Bon! It sounds like this could be framed in a shadow box because of how you fluffed the flowers up! I love the colors you used and the bling on the stamens. Are they stamens? That just came out of my fingers from back in the mental file cabinet from junior high biology, but I have no idea if that's right, lol! Thank you so much for playing three times in my NBUS Challenge #12 and for being such a supportive friend! Hugs, Dolly

Love the layered flowers! A great layout and great colours. It's been fun making my three NBUS cards for Darnell - good to get out those unused stamps.

Bobby said...
