This week the Stampendous focus has been on flowers. We hope you've stopped to smell the roses as you've seen them. It seems just as soon as we see the flowers bloom they are gone, right? Well the best thing about stamps is that your flowers will always be in bloom.
Today I'm sharing Rain Flower from the House-Mouse Designs collection and it's also for the latest Mix-Ability challenge MIX105: Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head.
First this stamp is PERFECT for the challenge and second the technique Lydia mentions is awesome, but I cheated out by using this PERFECT image for the challenge. Muzzy is just too cute not to use, right?
Thanks for stopping by to see my project today! Before I get to the supplies and instructions, there are a few from the design team that are posting today as well. If you haven't stopped by to see them, or gone to the Stampendous blog to see all the goodies there you can click on their links below.
