Flower Gala


Daffodils Heather Telford

The daffodils above and the tulips below make up the pretty new ‘Flower Gala’ cling set from Penny Black. I kept my layouts simple positioning each stamp to neatly frame a sentiment. The sentiments are new too, one from each of the new sentiment sets in the ‘So Special‘ release. (listed below). I stamped both the flower stamps in vintage photo distress ink then painted the interior with distress stains which blended with the vintage photo ink for an aged effect

    Love the simple, timeless look of the vintage photo outlines, and filling in with stains. It perfectly fits with the sympathy cards I need to make right now. Thanks, Heather. Once again, your inspiration is very timely!
