'Summer Blooms'

'Summer Blooms'
is the new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges
for the month of June.
We are a stamping challenge so combining that with some flowers
will qualify you for this challenge.

This rose stamp is one of my all time favourites 
from Flonzcraft (though there are a few that are my favourites)
and you can find here.



It was a challenge to use it in a way that I haven't tried yet.
So this time I have used it stamped onto a 
mixed media background.
I have applied grunge paste with a palette knife,  
and a little more through a stencil before covering with gesso
and Fresco Finish paint...then stamping of course.

I hope you take the time to pop over to 
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.
 Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 gift voucher to the winner,
he offers an occasional spot prize
and there is always a top 3!

Enjoy!
