We have the first of the Woodware Retailer Challenges & we are being started off by Jill Tuck.Our mission should we choose to accept it this week is to  create a design using only stamps & inks. No problem!! I've started by taking a square piece of glossy card & randomly stamping with a Versamark inkpad, some of the leaves from the flower Medley set by Francoise Read. Then using the Kaleidacolor dye inkpad I've brayered over the top which gives a lovely muted pattern & hey presto! you have your background design. Next I inked the largest flower from the set with "Autumn Leaves" & printed onto white pearl card & this created a gorgeous pearly effect (funny that!). Now simply cut out the flowers & layer the background onto the card blank. Add some raffia before you attach the layer to the card. The sentiment which has been placed onto a tag from the label punch comes from Jane Gill's new ones & has some lovely greetings in a great font. Now simply add some punched mini sunflowers, the Nailheads, Metals & Liquid Pearls to the flower centres for a hot summery design.

Here's a closer look at the flowers.
