Camellias

I got the guts to try coloring up this stamp with alcohol markers yesterday after I perused images of Camellias on google.  They are just gorgeous flowers, in so many pretty colors!  I do not think they would grow outside in my area, but I wonder if you can grow them inside...

Click on photos to enlarge.
I decided pink would be the easiest color to try first.  This die was the only one in my collection that seemed to fit the flowers well.  


One item I had not used before was the small tag die with the little heart.  I wanted this to be a Valentine, so I thought this little tag would be perfect.  


Supplies: Power Poppy Simply Camellias stamps set, Memento black ink, Spectrum Noir markers CR1, CR2, PP3, LG1, CG4, BT2, Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles, Spellbinders Labels 18, Avery Elle Stitched Rectangles (the small tag die), My Mind's Eye Bramble Rose paper pad, Fiskars corner punch.

I drew inspiration from all three of these great challenges!  I hope you will check them out!

After I publish this post, I am going to work on trying to change my email address associated 
with this blog (we switched internet to save money).  I tried earlier today but it was getting tricky, so wish me luck!  And thank you SO MUCH for visiting and especially for the really kind comments!  I am really encouraged by YOU!

  1. This is just beautiful and the colored flowers look amazing. I love how that bouquet perfectly fits that diecut and the lacy pink diecut adds to the beauty of this one! Love that little tag with the heart too! What a fabulous valentine without the traditional colors!

  7. Beautiful coloring, lovely dies to frame it all.
    Hope you had good luck with the email, I told my hubby that is one of the biggest reasons I don't want to change our internet provider
