Lilies of the Field

I often remind myself that I have so many flower stamps. And I don't need to buy ANY more! Then along comes one that is just not like anything I already have  - and I buy it! That is the story of how I recently came upon the Lilies of the Field stamps in my recent order. 

And the Make It Monday Challenge gives me a great chance to use it! Betsy asked us to do some Masking and Stacking of the cutest stamp we could find. Unable to find any critters from PTI I used flowers instead. 

Using a die to cut the masks surely makes this a much easier technique to use. I began with the tall flower in the center and continued to fill in by masking and stamping. I wanted to keep it clean and crisp, so I nixed the idea of adding shading to the background but stamped a few dots in Old Gold to fill in some of the spaces and add dimension.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Turned out beautiful, Cindy! I find it’s always challenging using a floral stamp set for the first time.

I know! I can't stop buying the flower stamps. Or critters. I try to branch out, but it rarely happens. But, hey, there are so many different flowers, there's bound to be something that's not in your collection and you just have to have it! You made a great choice with these lilies. Such a pretty card design with the scalloped curves and that little bit of designer paper. Perfect!
