So You Think You Can Stamp contest

I already mentioned this, but I thought I would post my layout for the contest here and give you a good peek at a close-up of those YUMMY flowers! The voting is still open until Thurs at noon and I understand you can vote for more then one entry. There will be several stampers who will move onto the next phase with more voting next week.
Voting here - So You Think You Can Stamp contest

This is my granddaughter when I caught her using her mom's camera. It is so fun to see the interest in photography being passed on to my kids and then to their kids.
I wanted to give you a real close up of the flowers. I used this great set by Kitchen Sink Stamps. She has several sets of stamps that are referred to as 3-step stamps but if you count stamping the middle to this larger Daisy, there were four steps. Each layer of stamps just adds more and more details to the image, each time using darker stamp pad colors. And for these flowers I used Worldwin papers, Treasures cardstock in white and you can see the "canvas" look that gives to the flowers.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
