PTPD Challenge #31

Welcome to the 31st Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge!  I'm so excited to be a part of this group of talented stampers.  You can find our current challenge HERE.  These are the rules we were to follow:

1. Use a flower set, if you have it Papertrey Ink, Year of the Flowers set.

2. Use a designer paper. If you don't have any, make your own. I actually used SU designer paper Real Red and stamped using the flower images. But I could have just stamped on plain paper and it would have been pretty too!

3. Use at least three different colors.

Here's my take on the challenge:


My favorite YOF set is Violets.  I stamped them in black on a sheet of pp from the Guidelines collection.  The blossoms are colored a bit with Copic markers (C1 and R32).  I colored some silk ribbon in R32 to match the centers of the violets.  The leaves are stamped in Ripe Avocado and the rhinestones are colored with my YG95 Copic to match.

Thanks for a great challenge Laurie!

Stamps:  Year of Flowers: Violets, Damask Designs (sentiment)
