Sunday Stamper - flowers

Hi everyone, a quick post. I've been blogging just over a year now. It's my 96th post and I'd hoped I'd do my 100th post on March 16th but never mind. Why mention this? Well my first leap into blog land was a Sunday post and with a few minutes to spare I entered 'The Sunday Stamper' challenge. Hel's left some lovely comments and a few weeks later Astrid dropped by and I want to thank these 2 lovely ladies for their encouragement and starting me off on what has been a fabulous journey so far!

I haven't entered the challenge for a while but just had to it being 1 year on, so here's my entry for this week, the theme being flowers.

It's a brayered background of the new Lin Brown limited edition paints, lovely bright colours.

Then Darcy's new stamps with pink and blue archival and some distress markers to shade. To finish some gold pen highlighting....a really quick card....but love it when a plan comes together!

Thanks for following ...that was a surprise which I never expected (thanks Donna for being the first). Thanks for all your encouragement and for inspiring me with your wonderful art out there.....see you soon! Hugs Ruth x


  1. This is so gorgeous Ruth - I love the colours and the way you've tied together the pattern of the flower heads with the background - it's all very cohesive and beautiful. Congratulations on a year's blogging - here's to many more!

  2. Congratulations on your 1 year blogaversary Ruth! Great to see your card, wonderful brayered background and an inspired choice of flower colours :-) xxx

  3. Oh what a surprise! Yes I was the first follower wasn't I,I remember asking you if you had a followers button which I think at the time you didn't! I think I first 'found' you over on the Paperartsy blog where you'd made something stunning as usual.
