Flower Challenge -- an older die or stamp


The newest card challenge for me is The Flower Challenge. For this particular challenge, I dug in the many drawers of floral stamps to find one of my most favorite:  the Impression Obsession "ruffled bloom."  I used Brushos in Brilliant Red, soaking the heat-embossed image on watercolor paper. The sentiment is from Stampabilities, stamped before the card was dry-embossed.  Challenge met.

Ahhhh, I remember this pretty ruffly flower. It's so nice to see older stamps being used. Love the new stuff, but adore so many others, too. I like the effect of the single color Brushos. I must remember to do the embossing over sentiment. I like that, as well.
