SIMPLE PLEASURES with TLC

I was very honoured to have been approached by Paulette from Create with TLC to be a once of guest designer for TLC.  I had the privilege of selecting my favourite digi image from their website to create with.  

My selection was this gorgeous vintage stamp which came as a set with the sentiment.  Once again I used my H2O's to colour the image as well as some dry chalks for general shading.  All the flowers and butterfly were stamped with acrylic stamps, cut out and faux stitched around the edges.  The patterned papers are Basic Grey.  The photographs does not perfectly reflect the true colours as the orange on the bottom two flowers came out a bit too orange.  And again its my favourite step card design.  Hope you like it.  This is creation is also featured today on TLC's blog, so hop on over and have a peep.







Once again I would like to try my hand it the following challenges with this creation:
Thank you once again for stopping by.  I trust you all had a blessed Easter weekend and are back home safe if you have travelled.
