*IBS June Release: Summer Flowers

Good morning-
Welcome back to day 2, of Inspired by Stamping hop.
Did you check out yesterdays release?  No worries, click HERE.
So, yesterday I told you how this months release was my favorite....did you see why!!
Wait til you see the next stamp set.
Now, I LOVE anything flowers!!!
It doesn't matter the size or type of flower!!!  I love them all. 
Now, Joanna has created this AMAZING set called: Summer Flowers
This set includes Dahlias, Zinnias, Pansies and so much more.
Let's take a peek at my sample card.
I this card and the it's entire composition!!
I stamped Fancy Labels 2 on white cardstock and embossed with black embossing powder. 
I stamped the frame again on regular printer paper.  I cut out the center oval and placed it over the already embossed frame.  It's best to use printer paper when creating masks, because it's not bulky and you will get clean lines.  Once I had the mask, I stamped the flower inside the frame.  Flower and background were colored using Copic markers. 
Now, check out the background. Do you  see the lightly checkered pattern? 
 Well if you do, great cause that is a new background stamp being showcased tomorrow.
So make sure you come back for even more eye candy.
