Flowers for Mimi

Hope you are all well and enjoying some crafting x The stamp l am using today is yet again another from my unused box, l bought it a few weeks ago from Samuel Taylors (Brighouse) where they were selling off wood mounted stamps at half price, well we all love a bargain and l love my PB's so had to have it.  I love to create my own backgrounds as you can colour match everything perfectly when it all starts out as white card.

Stamp Penny Black Flowers for Mini
Coloured with copics and prisma pencils.
Polka Dot background stamp and flowers stamp both from SU
Punched flowers on card coloured with copics and gel pen dots
