Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge April 2016 - Spring Flowers

Spring is in the air over at the Craft Stamper Blog where we would like you to use Spring Flowers on your projects.

I stamped out IndigoBlu's Colour Me Anemone in Crushed Olive Distress Ink six times onto white tissue paper, die cut them with TH Tattered Florals and then layered them up. After a scrunching they look very flower like :)

The background is made from After Morris paper, which had been distressed around the edge, and covered with a coat of diluted white GeeSsoGood, then using one of the Tiny Background stamps and Crushed Olive Distress ink more colour was added over the top. The Marianne Craftable dies makes a fabulous circle to frame the sentiment taken from the Floral Fantasy stamp set. Then to finish off the Butterflies from the same set were stamped in black Archival, cut out and brushed over with a little Crushed Olive to bring the colours together.

Then after adding the flowers, butterflies, sequins and pearls, a little splattering of diluted Black GeeSsoGood was added to loose a little of the clean feel.  You will find heaps more inspiration from the rest of fabulous DT over a the blog.

Traplet are sponsoring us this month and we have an amazing prize up for grabs (wish I could enter) not one of Kate Cranes amazing DVD's but all six!!!!!!!
So think Spring Flowers and get stamping, check out the link above to find full instructions on how to enter. You could also be in with a chance to have your artwork featured in the magazine itself, how cool would that be.

Good Luck
