Anything With Flowers at Stamping Sensations

Hello there my crafty friends,

It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Anything With Flowers.'  Here's my card:


I started by stamping and embossing the BEAUtanical Lily by Bee Crafty.  I then coloured it using Derwent Inktense pencils.  The background was created by using various Distress/Distress Oxide inks and stencils.

We are very kindly sponsored this month by 'Bee Crafty' and the lucky winner will receive a £25 gift voucher.


I was lucky enough to meet Bev from Bee Crafty at the Stamp Magic show at Doncaster last October and she's such a lovely person, so friendly and just as you see her on telly.  It was really nice to be able to thank her in person for sponsoring our challenge.  It was also a good excuse for me to add a few Bee Crafty stamps to my collection.   If you've never tried them before, then I would definitely advise giving them a go.  I am really impressed with them and they leave such a good impression, fabulous packaging too.

I do hope that you'll be able to join us in this month's challenge but please remember that Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image as the focal element of your artwork, not just a stamped sentiment or stamping in the background, this means: 
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

This is a lovely card! I like the pretty image. Lillies are one of my fave cut flowers. They look so stately in a vase.

You choice of colours gives such intensity to the Be Craft Lily Sandra, a lovely card to display the beauty of their stamps. I am hoping to go to Stamperama next week and Bev is there so will be nice to say a quick hello.
