Beautiful Colors!

Love the inspiration the Kim Wilson has given us for this weeks challenge #25 at Off The Wall Craftiness. I just happen to have won a few older sets of SU! stamps on Ebay this week. Now, you know I wanted to ink them! Since I have not had time to do Kim's challenge for a couple of weeks, I had to make the stamps work. Here are the colors we are to use.

Soft and pretty colors, don't you think?

This is what I came up with. I have so many friends that love pretty flowers. I am sure this will not sit in my stash for very long. The SU! set is called Flower Garden, from 2004. I stamped all of my images with Going Grey ink so they would not be too bold. Coloring was done with Copic markers. I sponged with Going Grey and Pallette ink called Belle Rose. My butterflies were double stamped, cut , and popped. Glossy Accents and a wee bit of Stickles, were added as subtle touches. I used a shimmering grey card stock from Bazzill called Tiara. The DP is from The Mariposa Matstack made by DCWV. The gossamer grey flowers are Prima's and my centers of Gun metal beads, are from MM.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It is beautiful here!
