I am such a fan of Lockhart stamps. I think Karen has such a great eye for detail and her flower stamps are just the best. This stamp is called Rose of Sharon which I have to admit I had never heard of before. My green-thumbed mom is probably cringing right now. Sorry Mom, I'm afraid none of your gardening genes were passed on to me!
I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and added Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls to the center. The border was created with one of Martha Stewart's punches, but for the life of me I can't find what it's called. I used Basic Grey's Euphoria PP along with just a touch of Stampin' Up.
I'm off to bed. Thanks for checking in and don't forget about the great "pay to play" Stampin' Out Alzheimer's event. You still have plenty of time to play along. I created my new banner with the free "Flip Flop Tan" digital mini kit by Libby Weifenbach. You can get this kit free to with a donation as small as $5. The best part? All of the proceeds go straight to the Alzheimer's Association.
