Gorgeous Flowers Blooming Blog Hop

Hey Peeps :)


 Welcome to The Gorgeous Flowers Blooming Blog Hop. Hopefully, you have arrived from Lovely Stephanie's Roses. If you are lost, hop over to the Make it Crafty Store Blog...

Today, I'm excited to be sharing a new Release of beautifully illustrated Flower Stamps from Make it Crafty. They're intricate and delicate, with lots of detail, and are the perfect choice for many occasions.Birthday Daisies, Magnolia For Mum, Roses of Love, and Sympathy Lillies, are available in both Digital and Rubber. (The Rubber Stamps (only) also come with a hand written sentiment, which of course you could use on any of the different flowers.)


 To tie in with the new Water Colour Challenge at Make it Colourful, I've stepped right out of my comfort zone and water coloured the lot! I've messed around with watercolours a few times for backgrounds, but never a whole image. It was a learning curve for sure... Watercolours are very, very different to Copics.


Anyhoo, there are four random prizes hidden on various stops of the Blog Hop, so be sure to leave some love at each Blog. You have until 10am Sunday,  UK Time. 

You need to head over to Super Talented Elaine next...

Here's a list of everyone:
