Casology - Flowers


A new challenge begins today at CASology!  The cue word this week is Flowers!  And guess who's hosting this week?  Yep!  Serendipity Stamps.   They have some of the most beautiful detailed flower images you'll ever see.   Since I'm on the DT for SS I got the cue word early this time and was able to play.  So how to make a super detailed image clean and simple?  Here's what I did... 
I stamped this pretty violet bouquet in purple ink, die cut the sentiment on top of the stamped image, and then layered it on a darker purple paper so the sentiment would stand out.  I couldn't resist sprinkling on some purple gems.

If you're playing along this week and you're using your Serendipity Stamps you can double dip - enter it at CASology, and then enter it at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  Our theme this month is (yep!  it really is!) FLOWERS!

Have a beautiful day!!

You do CAS so well. Love this card and the beautiful and detailed floral image. It's so striking with the monochrome look. I should really play along again and use one of my new Serendipity flowers. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

I never think to stamp a line image in colour and then leave it, but you've reminded me how good it looks! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

Jeanne, I love how your card is so in keeping with your beautiful website header! You certainly know how to capture a perfect purple flower! That simple but detailed lilac image so perfectly mounted is a picture!
