Bricks and Flowers

The October challenge at STAMPlorations is Stamps and Embossing

And for the Anything Goes Challenge using STAMPloration Stamps

Using STAMPlorations stamp sets Eclectic Florals and Grunge Floral Strips.  For the strips I stamped in Versamark and used Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder and on the flowers, also stamped with Versamark used WOW Warm Red embossing powder and heat embossed.  Stamped the stems with Memento Olive Grove. After embossing I noticed a speck of red on the background, so added some light splatters to hide it.  Used a Tim Holtz brick embossing folder for the background and rubbed Distress Inks Antique Linen and Vintage Photo with the ink pads direct to the background.  Added some pieces of a word window punch to the floral strips and some small punched circles that were smeared with Encore Bronze ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooo, I love the urban grunge feel of this card, Sue! The flowers make for a great contrast! Way to go on this month's stamps and embossing challenge. I really, really, really, love your card!
