STAMPlorations inspiration #54

Welcome to a new year of inspiration projects using STAMPlorations stamps! Ready for the first for this year? Get your sunglasses ready and meet "Bloom... birthday girl"...

I am still absolutely enthralled with Shirley's Folk Flowers and had to give them another go. This time with colored embossing powder. Then I got the brilliant idea to color them in with Zigs in the same color as the embossing powder. And things got a bit out of hand ;)

Since things had gone from delicate and sweet to bold and in-your-face, I had to dress up my card design with some touches of black (doodles from Artsy Border Maker and a sentiment from Hope Blooms). A strip of washi along the bottom grounds the flowers with a hint of grass.

Check out what my teamies have created. We've changed things up a bit with the Inspiration Project posts. We'll be posting every Tuesday. And if you leave a comment on the Tuesday post on the STAMPlorations blog, you're in the running for a monthly random draw for a $10 gift certificate.

I'm hooking up over at Stampin Royalty #310 where it's all about washi and Simon Says Monday Challenge where it's about "Something New" and my bright colored embossing powders are new from WOW. So I'm hooking up at WOW! Embossing Powder too!
