Summer Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Summer... it goes by way to fast. I was thinking of summer roses and flowers that come after summer cool weather pansies too. My newest stamp water color flowers from my favorite things was something I keep coming back to to  try different things with and see what works. Since  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is about summer I figured these cards would be good for that challenge.

 It's a little bit hard to see but a layer of the roses has been stamped with versamark and heat embossed with WOW silver embossing powder.

The roses and the sky have been done with distress inks: Salty Ocean, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet,   Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint.

These little flowers on the stamp looked little pansies so I stamped them in typical pansy colors and I used my ink to color my ribbon to match with mustard seed. I drew the centers in with a gold pitt pen. If you enjoyed my cards please leave me some comments, it is nice to know what you think.
