stampers anonymous. . . .

has always been one of my favorite companies.  I just received the new Tim Holtz flower garden collection last week and it is absolutely beautiful!


I used Prismacolor pencils to color the cone flower.  The stitched rectangle die and the happy die are from MFT.  The scalloped layer was cut from MFT's plum cardstock and the die is from Mama Elephant.  I added some of MFT's glitter glaze to the top of the flower - it is beautiful in real life.  Kinda' like putting glossy accents over the wink of Stella, only much prettier in my opinion.  The 4mm sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

The stamp, the happy die, the cardstock and the glitter glaze are all new to me and have never been used, so I am linking this up to Darnell's 4th NBUS challenge.

Other challenges:

Casology:  blossom.



RetroSketches:  Sketch #157.


See you soon!
