Susan or Coneflower

I love this stamp as I can make it into any number of flowers from my garden! Ah, alas, nearly all gone by now. This summer was so wet that everything was wiggy so I needed to cut it all back earlier this year. Last year I was able to leave some spent blossoms for interesting texture in the snow, but not this year. If we get half the snow as we got rain I fear we are in for a lot of snow days at school and a prolonged year like last!

Anyway ... I digress! This is the SU Inspired by nature set. I applied the color with markers and then blended them with a sponge. I used the grass from the other side as backdrop interest. The flowers were clear embossed and then I brayered over the top with bashful blue. It is mounted on Old Olive.
