Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Flower Power

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project using floral stamps. This was one of my CHA board samples - it's a wood plaque that I painted, stamped and then painted some more.

This stamp image is L13426 Fuchsia - it's from my new release. I've always loved fuchsias - they're such bold and interesting colors.

It's a larger image, which makes it ideal for this type of piece - I stamped using Memento Luxe ink, then painted within the lines, building up layers of color as I went along. 

I used the Vintage Honeycomb Cover-a-Card stamp to add some texture after the painting was done - that was stamped with Versamark ink, and embossed with white powder - I brushed some of it off lightly before heat setting so the effect would be lighter.

Every time we go to Goodwill I pick up a few wood pieces to paint... I need to remember to actually PAINT them, which is one of my creative goals this year!
