Same Stamp Challenge 1 of 2: Elizabeth

One stamp, one Studio, two designers, two cards... what will two friends create when they both reach for the beautiful Penny Black stamp, 30-418 Stitched Flowers?

What I noticed as I looked at this set was that not only were flowers beautiful as groupings, but they could also be used separately.  

(Penny Black: Stitched Flowers 30-418, Birthday Love 30-413, Golden Moment Paper Pad 80-015)

For this greeting, a single stitched flower becomes a beautiful embellishment.

After the flower was stamped in tuxedo black Memento ink on white cardstock it was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  It was then attached to a larger piece of white cardstock with dimensional foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped underneath the flower in onyx black VersaFine and the edges of the cardstock were inked with a Marvy Premium Gold Ink Pen.

Lately, I find myself reaching for small elements of patterned paper to complement my designs.  This flowery piece of paper applied to the card base created a nice echo of flowers behind the main flower embellishment. 

Stay tuned to see how Jill creatively "stitches" her flowers.
