For You {make it monday}

Happy Friday...It's been a long time since I played along with a PTI Make It Monday Challenge, but I loved the backgrounds that Nichole showed this week. I typically don't make bold backgrounds with my stamps, but have to say I love the colors and stamps together.  This was a great challenge to stretch the use of my stamps.  I used the sunflower, tiny tags, turning a new leaf and beautiful blossoms sets.  Now, I have a few ideas whirling around in my head to make Christmas cards backgrounds too!

That's all for today...hope your weekend gets off to a great start!

This is so pretty, and makes for the most perfect patterned paper. The colors are delish.

So lovely. A technique question: when you rock and roll the stamp, do you start with the inside or outside color? I mean, did you stamp the red first or the orange? I love the effect and would love to try it myself. Thanks a lot!

This is beautiful Lynn! Love the colors you chose. That sunflower looks stunning. I still haven't inked mine up - shame on me.
