Hello friends!
Sometimes we get so busy with new released stamps that we forget about our old favorites. The Impression Obsession team has set aside a couple days a month to share some new projects using some great older stamps. You can see the list of today’s participants on the Impression Obsession blog

Today, I have a flower card for you.
The flower image I used is Zinnia, the background image is Wide Watercolor Stripe, this is one of my favorite background stamps!
Position you  Zinnia stamp on your MISTI and stamp it on white cardstock in Jet Black Ink, color image with markers., then add Clear Sparkle Pen to all shimmer.

Summer Bouquet!

Hello friends!!
Hope you all are having a fantastic day!
It's Friday and I hope you have plans for a great weekend!
Flowers are here as well, and I love them! 
I bought several kinds this year and some are still up and some are gone, lol, got lots of seeds because I have plans to remodel my garden area and get just flowers, sadly I didn't do anything there because of "things happen", but hopefully I can get things clean and done before Fall is over, and the weather is not too bad.

Anyways, talking about flowers, don't you love this gorgeous image just release?!
This is "Summer Bouquet" and perfect for coloring if you like to do so or just great done using embossing powders.

Stamp Summer Bouquet on white cardstock in Black Ink, color image with markers.
Fussy cut image.
Create a background with a Spatter stencil and purple ink.
Cut a piece of vellum and adhere it to card front, then add the Summer Bouquet with foam adhesive.
