This week the Inspired Stamps Design Team is focusing on combining Flower Stamps with a scripture.  I decided to once again create my own backgrounds using the Flowers stamp set.  I couldn't decided which card I wanted to make so this week you get to see 2 pieces of my artwork.

The first card is using a piece of the background paper I created in my April 5th post. I combined the Flowers Stamp Set background with the His Plans For You Stamp Set, to create this card. I love how the background turned out and am disappointed I only have 2 small scraps of it left. It has been really fun to play with and I am sure I will be making my own Background paper using this technique again real soon.

On my second card I used the Big Flower from the Flowers Stamp set to create the Key Lime and Sky background paper using the same color cardstock and ink stamping tone on tone.  I also took a piece of white cardstock and stamped it using Sky, Sunkiss Yellow and Hollyhock creating a colorful background paper.  I also used the His Plans For You Stamp set for the Scripture.
