Purple Floral Birthday.


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday where the optional theme is flowers.


If you like you can just play along with anything goes birthday. A great chance to catch up on all those birthday cards that we need!


This is a new to me flower stamp, and it took ages getting a print I was happy with lol!
I ended up using Versafine clair ink which is wonderful for fine details, as all of the other inks I tried were way too juicy and caused the image to be blobby!!

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where it's anything goes.

Watercooler Wednesday where it's also anything goes.


Die Cuttin Divas also are anything goes.





Supplies:
Stampin Up Healing Hugs flower stamp; Happy Little Stampers sentiment from Doodled flowers stamps; versafine clair chianti & shady lane ink; versafine onyx black & clear ep; MFT wild greenery dies; distress ink; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die.

Thanks for visiting,

Definitely looks like a very detailed stamp - I can see why the right ink would be so important! I love the color you've chosen for the rose - it looks velvelty! So gorgeous!
