Remember Botanicals?


This card is one of those that definitely took on a life of it's own! It started when I decided to do the Featured Stamper Challenge yesterday on SCS. As I was digging through my stamps I found this Botanicals set from SU and remembered how much I had enjoyed it in years past so I chose it to do the challenge. Well, one thing led to another and before you know it it looked nothing like the card I was trying to CASE! So, I still haven't done yesterdays challenge but I am kinda happy with how this turned out. I used Blue Bayou inks and papers and used a Blender Pen and the Blue Bayou refill to color the flower. I get so attached to some of these "In Colors" and don't want let go of them! Hope your Monday is going okay. Mine's better now that I'm home from work and can do my fun stuff now. Thanks so much for stopping by! :-)

This turned out beautifully. I just followed the link to your blog form SCS and was pleasantly surprised to see a familiar place! I hadn't made the connection between SCS and here before :)

I love your work, Joanne - and I can so relate to getting attached to favourite colours and stamps! Still, new stuff means we get creative all over again, right?

Have a wonderful day!
