Blue Hollyhocks and hummingbird

I loved Kiara's idea of stamping this image on text, and I wanted to try it, too. I found an old schoolbook in French, and used a page of that to stamp on. The large blue panel is a paint chip.

Supplies: K5370 Garden Silhouette, CL383 Antique Engravings (hummingbird), CL272 All Occasion Messages, Adirondack Stonewash and Vintage Photo Distress Inks

  2. So pretty Lin! The text and embossing look very elegant together, it gives it kind of a 'mysterious' look because you're wondering what some of the writing is, pretty neat!
