Stamp TV Scrapbook Challenge 22

I love to take pictures of the flowers on the road by our cabin. They are so beautiful. The neat part is that they bloom a week or two after the ones at home and if I time it right I get to enjoy them twice. This scrapbook page is for Stamp TV Scrapbook challenge # 22. The challenge was to pull out some summer photos and summer stamps. Since I just took these pictures and I won some beautiful flower stamps I thought I should give it a try.
The background paper is SU so saffron and I stamped it with a sunflower stamp from the Gina K set by Melanie Muenchinger called Say it with Flowers. I used so saffron ink. You might not be able to see that. Next I stamped another flower from the same set on Gina K pure luxury white. I was playing around with the technique called masking. That is fun but putzy. I really like putzy. Then I decided that I would cut some of the flowers out. All three layers are stamped with the same stamp. The middle layer I punched with a SU flower punch. I really like the way the white flowers look behind the colored ones. The sentiment is stamped from another Gina K set by Melanie Muenchinger called Say it with Flowers. The card stock colors are; garden green, pixie pink, regal rose, so saffron. The ribbon is A Muse. I like to do the scrapbook challenges. They get me motivated to work in my scrapbooks and to use stamps. I never used stamps in my scrapbooks before and I really think they add a lot.
Thanks for stopping. Let me know what you think.

Very pretty Linda. You are so right masking is 'work' but the results are FAB!

What a beautiful page and flowers too. My mom introduced me to SU because a friend of hers was using stamps to scrapbook and thought I'd like to. I started making cards shortly after and haven't been great about scrapbooking, so maybe I can get back into it!
