Fabulous Florets

Fabulous Florets is just that...FABULOUS!  It is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Summer Mini Catalog.  There are many ways to use this set and I just love the sentiment "the earth laughs in flowers" e.e. cummings.

I used Crumb Cake to stamp the background stems (stamping off one time) and then stamped the focal stem in Certainly Celery.  The flower color is done by first inking the stamp with  Daffodil Delight and then using a Pumpkin Pie marker to outline the petals throughout the stamp.  The flower and all layers of card stock were then sponged with Crumb Cake.  Popped the flower up with dimensionals.

Since I am new at this blogging thing and posting my cards online I am trying different ways to take pictures of my work.  Today I tried a black background and think it works well. Also learned how to make a watermark in Photoshop Elements which was way cool.  :)
