I am a big fan of bold dies where you do the coloring directly onto the stamp, like this one from Penny Black, also another great stamp maker of these are The Local King Rubber Stamps company from Vancouver, BC Canada--this company spends a lot of time each year at stamping and other craft shows all over the US. If you have an opportunity to see demos by this company at a stamp show, DO take the time, you'll be glad you did! I love the pristine beauty and elegance of these coneflowers. The peachy-pink or salmon color of these is so beautiful, and these flowers look so realistic. Using the black cardstock as a slim frame really adds a depth and it makes the colors of the flowers and leaves really pop. I love this floral arrangement and what you've done with it on this card, love!!! It's going in my favorites.
Joanne - Thank you for the tip about Local King Rubber Stamps. I do like that type of stamp. I enjoy going to craft shows once or twice a year if feasible, so I'll keep an eye out for them. And again, thank you for your kind words about my card and for naming it a Favorite!
