Waltzingmouse Challenge #4

I've been following the challenges over at the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge blog. I'm really enjoying these challenges. The sketches are quite unique and I'm finding, very challenging.

Here is the sketch we are to use this week:

Since I don't have many stamps sets from Waltzingmouse Stamps, I'm having to be more creative and think outside the box. What seems to work is using some stamps as background stamps. That's what I did this week.

Today I chose the Celtic Heritage set. It was one of the first sets I purchased. I used one of the stamps to create the background. Then I used prima flowers for the circle. I colored the flower centres with my copic marker so that it matched the paper I was using. For the sentiment, I chose the Fancy Phrases set again, and stamped it with versa mark and embossed it with white embossing powder, and then popped up the centre after I cut it out with my circle spellbinders.

I love the two tone colors, and the flowers just seem to set it off for me. I hope you like it.
