Bella is more than just a pretty face!

We know we all love Bella's, Stella's, Chichi's and all the other cutie faces that are part of the Stamping Bella family...but did you know there are also flowers!!! YES...flowers. Some are graceful, some are whimsical, some can be colored and others are only limited to your imagination. You may not know this, but I LOVE flower stamps. I can't get enough of them and of all the stamps I own, I'll never part with my flower stamps. So I had a bit of a flower meltdown and ordered me a few of Emily's flowers. I let my imagination take over and this is what I came up with.

First I stamped the solid flowery weeds in Adirondak Willow, then overstamped with Dandelion Bunches in Versafine black. I even used the dandelion mini to fill in the empty spaces at the bottom. I made the dandelions look more like purple onion plants by adding some pencil to them. I finished it up with glitter and mounted it quite simply to let my flowers take the stage.

I think it is my current favorite card!
