Beautiful Iris

 Morning and I bought an AALL&Create Iris stamp that someone was selling on a FB decluttering page and couldn't wait to use it. I stamped it onto a smooshed background I found,then coloured it with promarkers,doodled round the borders and added a number strip from inside a kitchen roll.The strips of p.paper were cut from the front of a Paper Favourites pad and images were cut from same paper.The sentiment was also cut from a paper pad.I love iris flowers and had a lovely pale blue which has diappeared last couple of years but have a healthy patch of white ones which are absolutely years old.

Any challenges with digi image prizes I amjust playing for fun/and support as no printer!

What a stunning card. Beautiful image and I love the colouring. Xx

Beautifully done Carol, the Iris is a beauty and works so nicely in blues. Like you have a few around the gardens, no whites though, pretty blues and yellow ones all along the front dyke.

Many thanks for sharing at Allsorts and We Love Stamping challenges.
