Inspired by the 2011 Hero Arts catalog cover

Made for the January challenge at Hero Arts and also for Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge: Show us your new stamps, and for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge: Flowers. I think the cover of the 2011 Hero Arts catalog is one of the prettiest yet, so I made my own version, using 2 new clear stamp sets from it. I used distress inks to color the flowers.

                            

Supplies: white and BoBunny passion fruit dot cardstocks, CL495 Blossom Art (flowers), CL493 Live Life, Versafine onyx black, mustard seed, victorian velvet, broken china, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick distress inks, HA art flowers, various buttons
