Sweet Stampin' - Flowers

Happy Saturday! It's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and our theme this week is Flowers.
I used a clear stamp by Viva Decor, 3D Amelie. The set includes several stamps of the same flower but trimmed down, so that you can cut them out and layer them up to give dimension. I hope that makes sense!  I used the full flower stamp (base stamp) for my card today.
I stamped the flower in black archival on Kraft card and then used my polychromos pencils to colour it in. It was a bit of an experiment as I hadn't coloured directly on to Kraft card before, and I didn't lay down a white layer first. Still need some work on that technique! I then added some bits with a white gel pen on top.
Using a 6x6 base I layered it up with tattered lace pindot squares and added a sentiment from a tattered lace stepper card set. Not my best offering, I'm afraid mojo and energy have been sadly lacking this week, but I had fun colouring.
I'm looking forward to seeing your creations, just remember to include some stamping to be considered for the top three. Happy Crafting!
