Funky Flowers

Hero Arts always have great challenges.... over a month they have different themes... this month themes are Masculine projects, a sketch challenge with 4 sketches

and a layered stamp technique ( see Shari's video)

I decided to try the stamp layered technique.... with a funky look.
Funky Flowers

I got the yellow and silver card in with my CCC card last month.  It seemed the perfect background for some whimsical funky flowers.  I stamped the largest flower from the Three Flower cling twice onto the yellow.   Then I stamped the flower onto two different papers from Rosie's Studio and cut out the flower and the centre and mixed and matched.  Finished off with a small Hero Arts sentiment.  I really liked the funky look I got.  Something a little bit different and fun.

Today the weather packed up.... yesterday as I left work the temperature on my car showed 25C, today 15C.... really cold.  Down in the South Island there was even a few skiffs of snow.... winter is coming...

Wishing you all a great week.
Dawn
