Great Flowers is a beautiful floral set!  I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and colored it using watercolor crayons and small paintbrush.  I then highlighted some of the petals using a white gel pen.  I used spellbinder dies for the image, leafy flourish, and doily layer.  A blue adhesive pearl and green twine multi-loop bow used as embellishment.

For the beautiful Flower Blocks stamp set I created a sunburst side panel using black, white and gray patterned paper strips; the image was stamped using versamark ink and embossed using detail black embossing powder.
