use what you have...

to create something different...

for this sample, 
I used 3 different flowers to create 
a totally new layered flower...

this is the largest bottom layer...
the center is just the center of this...

they were stamped with jet black &
 inked with violet archival...
you'll see violet text lightly stamped over the largest layer and polka dots stenciled on the middle sized layer...

they are combined with 
they work with so many flowers...

this is the result...

oh...
CHEERS is here...
and this is on a white magic mat board base...
and it's mounted on a slightly larger


if you look closely, do you see the subtle pattern on the mat mini butterfly?

here's how that works...

using the garden fresh stamp, ink the large flower center with jet black, then press a 
mat mini butterfly on the inked area...
ink again & press a scrap over the "clover" flower area...
cut out to create the flower center I used above...



LOTS of detail on that tiny butterfly...
look how cool...
