TIME OUT#82 - Flowers

The Challenge this week at TIME OUT is a very seasonally appropriate theme challenge - Flowers!!! We are also looking for cards that use an optional twist of "kissing" stamps together - and there will be a prize from our wonderful sponsor, Happy Little Stampers, to a random entry that uses the kissing technique.

Here is my take on the theme:

For my card, I used Simon Says Scribble Flowers stamps and dies - in a few bright colours - I did use the optional technique of "kissing" the flowers with a Tim Holtz rubber stamp to add some texture. Here is a close up of the texture:

For the background, I used some Peerless watercolours to create a soft wash, and a simple W+9 greeting.

We can't wait to se how you will be inspired by our flower theme and the kissing technique so make sure you take some TIME OUT to play along!

I will link this card to the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by!
