Rubbernecker Fashion, Florals, and Weeds Blog Hop!!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Rubbernecker Blog Hop to celebrate the release of all the new stamps: Florals, Weeds, Fashion Ladies, Vines, and a new background stamp!!! We are really excited about these new stamps...something for everyone's taste and style!!!
I used Floral #496-03 on my first card...the image was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear ep. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Floral Silhouettes set #467.
Paper: Black, So Saffron, Vanilla, Basic Grey's Origins dp
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Clear ep, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Nestabilities

The Floral image #496-11 was colored with several different inks using the edge of the ink pad to create the plaid look. I first pounced the edge of the ink pads in one direction and then turned the stamp and worked from the other side....hint: don't completely cover the image with any one color so you don't muddy the colors together. The background was sponged using Pink Pirouette and the buttons, ribbon, and ball fringe finish it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Floral #496-11
Paper: White, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Grey's Lemonade
Ink: Real Red, Regal Rose, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: So Saffton Marker, Buttons, Twine, Floss, Nestabilities, White Ball Fringe
Cuttlebug and Dotted Swiss Folder
