Stitched Flowers



Hello, Monday!  I'm playing along with the current Colour Me… challenge.  I finally got the Papertrey Ink Solid Stitches and Swirls stamps to go along with the original Stitches and Swirls set.  I love them!  So much fun to layer!  I chose to only layer some of the flowers and leaves here and love the contrast with the ones that I only stamped with stitches.  I coloured some gems with my Island Indigo marker to use in the flower centers.  This is such a great trick.  You never have to buy anything but clear gems because you can customize them any way you need to with markers!





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Stitches & Swirls, Solid Stitches & Swirls) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (Island Indigo) Stampin' Up, (Unicorn) Hero Arts
Marker:  (Stampin' Write Island Indigo) Stampin' Up
Gems:  Recollections

Beautiful card, Jen! And I do the same with my gems and pearls. I usually get them in clear or white and then use my Copics to get the color that I need :D

Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Me…! this week!

This is just gorgeous. I am pinning it, because it is the best thing I have ever seen done with both of those stamp sets. Gorgeous colors, too.
