Here is my collage for 'Wednesday Stamper'. The challenge this week was 'Flowers'. My background again is watercolor with Tim Holtz distress inks sponged overtop in places. I used a fruit pattern single ply tissue on the left and over that stamped the clear Rhonna Farrer flower stamp and swirl stamp onto a white single ply tissue. The background alphabet is from 'Above the Mark'. I also used a little sponging from a white stamp pad. Also a little sheet music and a few words from an old hymnal...'flowers bright and fair'. I mounted this on green matboard and it has a wire hanger under the heart brads which I used Patina on to darken. I hot glued the buttons and 'Wish' embellishment on. Thanks for coming by! Its always fun to see what happens with each week's challenge.

It's always a delight to see your Wednesday Stampers. And this one is just beautiful. I love the color and the little girl. I'm going to have to get me some Tim Holtz inks. It's also been fun reading your wool adventures. Looks like your having fun. I'm on my own most the day today and plan to clean up my craft room and then get out my scrapbooks for John & Sara. I've got to get them finished! Have a lovely weekend.
