ETSYInspired #35.........Flower Garden........And My Announcement!!!

Smiley from
Ahhhh...........Spring is here!!!!! Well, the short version that we get anyway!!! LOL And Ashley picked an ADORABLE Etsy Shop, Bealoo, for our inspiration challenge today!!!!

This gorgeous and cheerful flower image caught my eye!!! And it was so perfect for SEVERAL of my Clear Artistic Stamps!!!! Belinda has so many gorgeous flowers she's drawn, so I used flowers from Whispers In The Woods, Sympathy Garden, Flight Of My Dreams and Echos Of Summer, all part of the Capacious Collection.

I used the beautiful Shimmer Paper that Belinda carries, and my new Memento Markers from Gina K. But I did learn that the Memento Ink does smear somewhat on the shimmer paper, so I colored very gently and not completely with the lighter colors. I think it looks kinda artsy though and not too bad!! LOL Notice there is ZERO bling............ZERO bling people!!!! However there IS not all is lost!!!! LOL Be sure to play along and upload your creations to Ashley's Blog by next Friday night for a chance to win a prize!!!!

Now here's some EXCITING news from Clear Artistic Stamps.............May is Customer Appreciation Month Here! During May anyone ordering will have their name put in a drawing
for a grand prize of all 6 Capacious Sets. The drawing will be on Monday June 1. There will also be drawings on May 11 for 1 Shimmer Paper Style on May 18 for 2 Shimmerz & 2 Blingz
on May 25 for Holiday Celebration set. Even if you win one of the these prizes your name will go back in for the Grand Prize!!!!!!!
