Truly Scrumptious Challenge #4 - Flower Power Sketch

It's time for this weeks Truly Scrumptious challenge!!! We have had such a great response to our challenges, it is awesome to see everyones creations, I hope you are all having as much fun with these challenge as we are!!! So lets move on to the next challenge.

Our Host this week is Mina!!! What a talented lady!!! Dont forget to hop on over to her blog and leave her some love!!! She has created a fabulous sketch for us with an added a twist. That twist is called Flower Power. We all love to create flowers, let us see your best ones. Go crazy for flowers this week. They can be store bought or home made, it doesnt matter and above all, have FUN!!!

Here is the sketch Mina has made for us. I really enjoyed this sketch!! Thanks Mina!!!

And here is my take on this challenge:

As you can see, I used one of my BRAND SPANKIN NEW Whiff of Joy stamps!!! That is because they are SPONSORING this challenge!!! Thats right, you can win 2 images from Whiff of Joy!!! Now that is a GREAT reason to get started on this challenge NOW!!! Hop on over to the Truly Scrumptious challenge blog and leave your link to your creation with Mr Linky. Thats right, we have added Mr Linky to the blog to make it easier for everyone to leave their link to their work. Please make sure you leave the link directly to your challenge item and not to your general blog address.

I paired up this gorgeous Whiff of Joy (Willows w/Umbrella) stamp with Basic Grey's brand new Porcelain papers. I also used Stampin Up's colors of Cameo Coral, Barely Banana and Sage Shadow. I used the blender pen with ink pads to color her with. All of the words I created in my Word Processor. I do want to give credit where it is due. The rain, rain go away sentiment was totally inspired by my good friend Joan Ervin and this image from her blog. Ever since I saw that, I knew I wanted to use that in some way. Then the idea popped in to my brain, what little girl doesnt sing that when shes out playing in the rain. I just fanned mine out more to show all the words. Thanks Joan, you truly are an inspiration!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Make it a great day!!!
