Trying a New Technique

Hi, all! Hope you're having a fab weekend!

I'm playing along with two challenges today--Card Patterns 60 and Flutter By 105. I played with a new flower technique I saw a while ago on Winter's blog. Simple instructions can be found here. I love the way it turned out...what do you think?

Stamps: Egg Hunt (PTI), Friend Definition (Hero Arts)
Paper: Basic Gray, Cool Caribbean, PTI dp

Ink: Berry Sorbet, Versamark

Accessories: Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Kaisercraft pearls, dimensionals

That flower is fantastic. Thanks for adding the links. I'm putting it on my To Try list. Do you know if it works well for tissue paper? I might have to try that too.

Love the background stamping as well and fabulous colours.

OMG! Super flower! Thanks so much for providing the link - I'd visited that page before but lost it so it's now firmly saved for future reference!
There's something to classic about using Grey; looks fab!
