February at Stamping Sensations

Good morning, It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we are looking for
********Anything with Flowers********

As the title suggest we would love to see your floral creations. I am sure you will come up with lots of beautiful floral designs.
My Card this month is a beautiful Iris from our lovely sponsor, Bev at Bee Crafty. I coloured the stamp with memento inks in Paris Dusk and Cottage ivy. I then dragged colour and added a little extra with a water brush. I also added a little yellow and orange zig cleancolor marker. The background was stamped (Hobby Art stamps) and dusted with distress inks in bundled sage and tea dye.
Please can We remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image as the focal element of your artwork, not just a stamped sentiment or stamping in the background, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

As I mentioned above our sponsor is Bev from Bee Crafty. She is offering the lucky winner £25 worth of gorgeous goodies from the Bee Crafty store! There are gorgeous stamps, stencils, inks and all sorts of other goodies just waiting to fall into your basket! Rather a lot fell into mine, I can tell you! If you didn't see it before here is a card made with more Bee Crafty Stamps that fit the theme. I LOVE that sentiment!

Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the gorgeous designs from all my talented teamies! They really have made some outstanding cards this month! 
Thanks for looking!

Love how you've kept the design simple to show off that stunning iris. Such a gorgeous colour too. My late MIL would have loved it, they were her favourite flowers. x

Hi Sally
The Iris is so pretty, I love the image you’ve used and the background look a bit like linen too. What a fabulous rainbow coloured background and design on your second card, really gorgeous.
Happy crafting
