Home-made Rubber Stamps #7 - Flower and Stem

Okay, so today I am showcasing my favourite home-made stamps to date.  Yup, I hand carved that flower and that stem.  They are seperate images.  I could use them seperately or together like I've done here.


I had used Hibiscus Burst ink for the flowers ... and when I added the strip of Hibiscus Burst paper it was SO much brighter (probably because I am waiting - not so patiently - to purchase the new PTI ink as the old pads are getting dry).  So to fix the problem, I layered the pink cardstock with a bit of vellum punched with a scallop edge. 


It's true, I am totally addicted to creating my own stamps.  It is nice to be able to create something I want without having to purchase it or wait for it.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend.
