STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 145: FLOWERS

Glad you're here!  Today's Stampotique Designers' Challenge is brought to you by Valerie Wilson, who has us thinking about May flowers!  Here's what she has to say to motivate us this week:
Hi, Everyone!  Its Valerie here with this week's challenge.  April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, so let's add some flower power to our projects!  I'll be excited to see if you stamp some flowers, create faux flowers, use a mask to create a flower background or come up with some other original idea for sprinkling a few petals on your project! 
I am not really a flower person, although I think they are beautiful and enjoy them greatly in the wild.  So, what to do?  I went to the Stampotique Originals site and searched for "flowers."  Did you know you can do that?  Sure can!  I did find some stamps that I have in my "inventory" (yes, I do have a very indulgent husband and have amassed quite a collection of Stampotique stamps!), but they did not offer me the direction I sought.  I next searched on "people" and found Breezy!  How adorable is she?  Seeing her pluck those petals immediately reminded me of doing that as a young girl to determine whether or not "he" loved me! 



I hope, along with Valerie, I have inspired you to create something with flowers this week.  You can find the directions for submitting your artwork as well as all rules here.  You can submit something for each challenge and be entered to win one of two $30 gift certificates for Stampotique products awarded at the end of the month!

If you need a bit more inspiration, check out this video by one of the Stampotique Design Team members, Kaz Boughton!



I appreciate your comments and read and treasure each one.

Cheers!

  13. Kay this is too adorable. It looks like a rub on on top of your plaid background, which, by the way, is lovely.
