Stamped printed flowers

I always love using stamps from the Hero Arts printed flowers set - they are so versatile. This time I inked with four different toning shades of colorbox cats eye inkpads and stamped on to an offcut piece of Bo Bunny paper. I then cut them out - with this kind of flower the cutting doesn't have to be too precise. All other papers are from my offcuts box (mainly DCWV papers), so this is another entry for Pixie's crafty snippets 12.

I used the sketch for Eat sleep stamp 164:

 The oval is torn round a template, with the edges inked with one of the cats eye inkpads.

Colours are for Paper sundaes 112 photo inspiration:

The flower are for Kath's birthday challenge 1 on the CBC forum - CBC is celebrating ten years of fun, friendship and crafting together - if you've not been there yet, why not go over and join in the fun - new members are always welcome.
