Bold and Bright!

I've been having some journal fun again with my new Paper Artsy stamps by Darcy Wilkinson - Eclectica EDY10! This page started out as a bit of a mop up which then……oh! you know how one thing leads to another! If you saw my post last Wednesday you will see that I was going to cover some of it with torn paper but decided in the end to use PA Fresco paint -Inky Pool. The latest addition was using some Artemio Flowers and text from Darcy's Eclectica EDY10 and Archival Black ink.
The flowers were stamped onto white card and coloured with a water brush using the two colours I used to stamp them - Adirondak Wild Plum and Stream.
I stamped an extra flower and then 'fussy' cut them all out before intertwining the stems. Since this was such a joy to do I couldn't resist adding the Joy stamp(Lost Coast Designs)

I had Hel's Sunday Stamper Challenge - "Bright Colours" in my mind when I started but when I saw that Anything but a Card wants us to focus on the "Use 5" I added another flower.
I would also like to link to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where we are invited to 'Be Bold with our Stamping"

Thanks for looking, Chris
