New Flourishes Stamps at Stamper's Dream Day 3

This new stamp set from Flourishes is called, Signs Of Spring. Isn't it lovely? I wanted to pair the bright yellow daffodil with a blue and white background. The idea came from my lastest copy of the Pottery Barn catalog. The blue and white background was actually created with a stamp from the Strut Your Stuff set and white embossing powder. I love it!
The rectangle background was made by embossing a large rectangle Nestabilities into the card front. (insert giant smile for Spellbinders) To give it a wall art look, I stamped the word daffodil on the bottom corner of the rectangle.
Oh, I wanted to mention something about the Copics I use. A couple of you asked why the W3 was listed, when I didn't shadow with it. I use the W3 to get more colors, in a way. See the stem of the flower? I used some really bright greens and they needed to be toned down. By going over them with the W3, I achieved that look easily. Its a great way to get more mileage out of your markers, especially when you have limited quantity, like me! :)

Make sure and see what these ladies are up to today:
