Stamp of the Week - Wild Violets and an award!

Happy Monday to you!  Hope you had a good weekend!   It's time for another Stamp of the Week over at the Repeat Impressions blog!  This week we are featuring the 1706-I, Wild Violets stamp.  In order to get the 50% discount on the Stamp of the Week, you have to visit the blog to get the discount code and a link to the stamp.

I stamped the violets on a Twinchie square and colored them with Copic markers and then I added a yellow crystal to the center of each violet.  The blue background was sponged on to look like sky and then I matted the Twinchie on several layers of patterned paper and card stock.  I stamped my sentiment, from the Quartet Complements Series, on the bottom panel, but stamped each word separately because they are on top of each other  on the stamp and wouldn't have fit there otherwise.  The patterned papers are all from BasicGrey's Wisteria collection and I used this week's Sketch for You to Try for my layout.

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the Repeat Impressions team has done with the Stamp of the Week:
