Friends are Flowers (stamping bella)

Hello everyone.  🙂  I often get caught up in using the  most recent releases, tending to forget about my older “inventory.”  But this week Stamping Bella‘s challenge was to go “vintage.”  Not to create a vintage style but to use an older image or stamp set. YAY!  The perfect push to revisit old favorites.  I have always loved the Lulu stamps so that’s the first line that entered my mind.  🙂

Stamping Bella Lulu's Garden of Daisies

I have several Lulu stamps so it was actually a bit of a tough decision, which to use. I decided on Lulu’s Garden of Daisies.

Stamping Bella Lulu's Garden of Daisies (close-up)

Copic markers – E00, E01, E11, E35, E37, V01, V12, V15, V17, W00, W1, W2, W3, W5, Y21, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, YR18, YR23

After coloring with Copic markers, I added a subtle shimmer to Lulu’s dress using a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. The sentiment, from Garden Girl Flower Sentiments was stamped using black and purple ink, then die-cut with a die from a lovely set, gifted to me by my very sweet and generous friend, Bev. ♥

Next week’s challenge

Use a stamp from the same category as this month’s Stamp of the Month which is Winter Backdrop (20% off through 1/31 by the way). So next week we’ll use any other backdrop stamp. If you’d like, email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog. By doing so, you’ll also be entered to win some Bella Bucks! (All challenge details can be found HERE.)

Thanks so much for visiting today! 🙂
