B or Z

Bachelor Button or Zinnia? Or perhaps Marigold or some other flower?

I really wish I knew. If there's a flower expert out there, could you please advise, or even better--maybe the designer (Tim, are you listening?) can give me the answer.

These beauties are one of the six different flower blossoms you get with the new Flower Garden stamp set.

I am having so much fun with these, they have amazing detail and I appreciate the fine lines.

This tag was made using a page from the Wallflower paper stash, some acrylic paint and distress inks.

My technique was to stamp the flowers then fill them in with paint and a tiny brush. I enjoy detail-oriented tasks so this was no bother. I just put on some good tunes and get into the zone.

I'm linking to the Wednesday blog challenge at SSS where this week's theme is April Showers/Spring Flowers.

In the desert, any flower (even Summer annuals) can bloom this time of year. But the heat will have them dead and gone by June.


  1. This and a post below is so beautiful. SUPER!

    Greetings Carola

  2. Gorgeous, beautiful tag, not sure what flowers they are either but love how they pop out of the tag.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  3. Very beautiful. I love the colors you chose--soft, but still earthy. TFS

  4. Lovely tag, love the stamp and background : ) I bet if you contact Tim H on his blog he will reply. Could you please tell me if the paper stash is Tim Holtz too? Thank you.
    Best wishes from France,
