A touch of sunshine- that's what we could all do with in this very iffy summer of ours isn't it? I just love this single gerbera stamp from Jane Gill so much so that I've masked & stamped it 3 times! I've used a handy Stix2 product for my masking (A4 masking sheet), it's got a low tack sticky backing so you can use your mask again & again. I've embossed my 3 flowers with the yellow powder from the set & then I flicked a range of Color Solutions inks around the flowers. When I was satisfied I coloured the flowers with Tombow pens. The sentiment (Something to Say) & the butterfly (borrowed from Stampendous "Build a Bouquet") have been stamped with Brilliance Black. Now you know it's law that all butterflies have to have the Stickles treatment  but I didn't want too much sparkle so that's why I chose the more muted Frosted Lace. I have sprinkled some chunky white powder in places & heated from below to add some highlights. I wanted to keep the watercolour effect so I chose not to trim the tear off edge from the pad. I'm really pleased with the result of this design hope you'll like it too.
