The Flower Challenge #33 Focus on Background Stamping

Blimey, June already and only a few weeks until the longest day and then it’s all downhill from there! The start of the month also means that it’s time for a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this time our time is “Focus on Background Stamping”.
This month we have another great guest designer, Deepti Malik. She also has her own range of gorgeous stamps  Dee’s Artsy Impressions and has very generously donated a stamp set worth $15 for our winner this month. Please make sure you check out our challenge rules as we’d hate for you to be disqualified and miss out on the chance to win.
I used the MFT Bundles of Blossoms background stamp on mycard. I heated embossed it in white and then water coloured the image. I die cut and embossed the Tonic sentiment from the panel. I mounted the panel of green card on a 6x6 card. I then layered up the sentiment on 3 white die cuts and replaced it in the card. To finish I added sequins to the centres of some of the flowers.
I’ll be back with a reminder card on the 15th. Happy Crafting!
