Floral Statements Duo

A simple but lovely little duo for you today...

So the new Floral Statements set has just the 2 big stamps... HELLO and THANKS... intertwined with flowers... and they do simply do what the name says... make a statement with flowers...
Floral Statements Clear-Mount Stamp Set
First up.... THANKS... and the cabbage rose....
Stamped in Archival Black to get it as black as can be... then coloured in with Berry Burst and Pear Pizzazz markers... simples...
Then moving onto HELLO... and the old fashioned rose... or christmas rose... (or for me generally... Mock Orange or Philadelphus as my garden is full of its lovely smell at the moment) or actually... it is amazing how many plants it could be!!
Again stamped with Black Archival ink... and coloured in with Pear Pizzazz and Powder Pink marker pens... then the Aqua-painter pulled out to colour in the flower centres and shadows with Berry Burst... 

Finding the shadow areas is easy... as the artist has cross-hatched it all for us!! In fact this stamp set is really simple, quick and easy to say the words when we need to... highly recommended if you like your flowers....
And look... "wonky matting"... maybe a first on here.... but there was actually a good reason!!! I had stamped the image at an angle... so instead of getting a new white panel & stamping again... I thought what the heck... stick the word on straight but the mat at an angle... and it looks alright... and different for a change.... but I am going to giggle at all the "wonky matters/stampers!" in the future...

  1. What beautiful cards. I have seem some others using this stamp set but the A in the Thank You seem to disappear, you have the A very clear so was wondering if you went over it with a marker pen? Whatever you did or didn't do your cards are stunning. Take care.

    1. Oh good question... I don't think so...but it is possible as I have made a few using the set and did go over some letters (using a Basic Grey marker pen) rather than re-stamping.... and on checking another card.... my A in an embossed version is well stamped but less distinct than the other letters as there is a lot of flower and leaf detail around it....
