Shower of Flowers

Happy Saturday and welcome! It's the start of a new theme at Allsorts challenge and Mervi is hosting this week. Her optional theme is a real fun one ... Balloons. Of course you can choose our "anything goes" option if you don't have any balloon stamps or if you don't like balloons. All will be entered into the prize drawing as long as you follow our simple rules. Prizes are from AALL and Create for challenges 776/777 and winners will be announced as usual at the end of the month. 

I had lots of fun creating for this challenge especially looking through my stamps to select which one to use. I had no idea that I had so many stamps which included balloons and completely forgot I had this one which I purchased sometime last year from eBay during a time when I purchased several wood mounted PB stamps. This one is a real oldie from the year 2000, that makes it 24 years old!!! I did just find it listed by Lighthouse Books and Gifts in their Amazon shop. Currently they still have 3 in stock brand new, mine came from eBay well loved with black ink all over the wood block but it still stamps beautifully :)

I started out with a My Favorite Things rectangle stencil set and inked the inside of the rectangle using Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. Removed the mask then stamped this cute image - Penny Black Shower of Flowers - using Memento Tuxedo ink. I used my Copic markers for coloring. I did stamp the mouse and balloon on a scrap pieces (the balloon on a scrap piece I had inked with Wilted Violet  and used a polka dot stencil with Villianous Potion ink). I fussy cut both the balloon and little mouse, then added to the card with foam tape. Lots of stickles glitter was applied to the many flowers and balloon for some sparkle.

The sentiment is from the Penny Black clear set Friendship (also available from Lighthouse Books and Gifts on Amazon). I simply added a white card base for a CAS style.

This is the most adorable image Ellie, and I love that the stamp found its way to your craftroom after being pre-loved in another home! Your inked rectangle and the wide white frame it has left is a lovely way to focus on your stamped scene. Vicky x
