This is my entry for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: April Showers and/or Spring Flowers. They encouraged you to use Hero Arts and while I don't have a lot of Hero Arts stamps I do have one that is a huge beautiful flower, CL518. I decided to paper piece it and then use Bic Mark-its over it as it needed a little extra detail and depth. I then used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's "Hello Friend" and it fit perfectly. I like that the flower is going off the edge of the paper and I love the subtlety yet depth of using patterned paper instead of just plain card stock. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I had to use a heat tool to dry the ink otherwise it takes way too long to dry as my climate is a little too humid -- I even have to do that with chalk ink or else it will smear. I was going to add some washi tape that coordinated but I decided that would be too busy.
