Spring Time Flowers

I think some of my most favorite flower stamps are from PaperTrey, Inc.  I have used these particular stamps several times and still love using them.
I was playing with these flowers and the leaves that go with them and made them fit the retro sketch for this week.   I had stamped the leaves many times on plain white cardstock, not reinking each time so that I had clearer leaves and more subtle leaves.  I then added a little bit of color with some Copic markers.  When I was finished with this piece, it was easy to cut it up to go along with the sketch.
 The most fun aspect of the flowers and leaf piece to me was playing with the Stephanie Barnard Clearsnap sprays. I love these things. I did do some simple coloring with Copic markers but wanted the spray colors to really show off.
Here is the retro sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
