Retro Rubber #14...May Flowers



Hey,

Can't believe that we are already at Challenge 14 over at Retro Rubber..amazing how time flies when you are having fun! 

The last challenge was a lot of fun and we had so many entries which is fantastic.

This time we have another great theme for you - 


This should be super easy for everyone if you are anything like me and have a bejillion flower stamps!

I dug out an old favourite - I think it was a freebie, but I'm not sure as I have had it so long (over 5 years!)

I started by stamping my flowers onto a die-cut stitched square (die by Lawn Fawn).

I then decided to get all adventurous and paper pieced all of the flowers! I chose pink scraps that co-ordinated with my backing paper (by Lawn Fawn). I coloured everything else using Promarkers and Stickles.

The sentiment is made up of a Wplus9 die and SSS stamps.

It was a lot of a work, but it was worth it and really brought my old stamp to life.

Your turn now! But first pop over to Retro Rubber and check out the superb creations by my team mates.

Don't forget to use a stamp over a year old on your project and the challenge ends on May 22.
