Unity Stamps + Petaloo Flowers = FUN!!!

Hello Friends,
I am so excited to share with you today because not only did I get to use my favourite Unity Stamps this week, but I also got to have a play with some beautiful Petaloo flowers.
You should have just come from visiting the amazingly talented Lisa Arana.
Here is my layout

I don't usually scrap myself, but I had this idea in my head,
so I got my bestie to take the photo for me.


All the flowers are from Petaloo and have either been inked, sprayed or stamped.


I love this stamp!!!  It is from the SMAK Kit - March 2013 - {Chalk It Up}


And another close up.


Those little cameras are from the SMAK Kit - Mary 2013 - {just one of THOSE days}

Here are the products I used to ink and stamp the flowers:


The flowers I used are:

CMC - Darjeeling Coll. Med/Minis x 14

and
CMC - Gypsies Multi-colored centers
I used this Unity Stamp Co. Stamp a lot on the layout and
also on the flowers - Worn Music.

It is one of my favourite stamps.  When I inked the flowers with this stamp, I never use an acrylic block.  I like to just bend the stamp to go with the contour of the flower.
It also give it a not so perfect stamp, which was what I was after around the layout also.


So many photos today.  But I had so much fun and just wanted to share it with you.

Make sure that you leave some LOVE on EACH of the blogs (including this)
 for your chance to win one of three $20 gift certificates to the store. 
Winners will be picked Saturday and be posted here. :)

Now it is time to head to the very talented


Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I would love it if you would like my new Facebook page.
