Fall Flowers in Bloom

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by to enjoy a taste of Fall with me!


These pretty flowers are from My Favorite Things and right now they are my 
favorite stamp.  I want to do them in lots of colors.

I've stamped and heat embossed with white powder, then used my 
Zigs and a waterbrush to color the flowers.

A light wash of the yellow and orange and some brown and gray 
splatters finish it off.

I'm also sharing with

What pretty fall flowers....your coloring makes them. So nice to be able to hang on to fave flower stamps even in fall and winter. The splatters and wash set them off so nicely. Happy Fall!

I agree that that is a lovely stamp! Looking forward to seeing it in other colours. Today's version is perfect for fall - such beautiful oranges and yellows. And a beautiful wash in the background.
