Crafty Catz Challenge #306 ~ Flowers stamped or digi

Good morning and Happy New Year to you all!  Wow it's been so long since I blogged and I had the good intentions of blogging and crafting throughout the holiday period and it just didn't work out that way!  So here I am back with the first challenge of the new year from Crafty Catz and this week it's the turn of our fabulous boss lady Carol to choose the theme and she would like to see 'FLOWERS' but this isn't about adding all those gorgeous flowers we all have though you can add those too but it's about stamping flowers (rubber or digi).  Our wonderful sponsors this week are

this is equal to 3 images of winners choice



A Day For Daisies were also kind enough to give the DT some fabulous images to play along with.  I chose Mr Rooster who I coloured using copics.  The papers are First Editon Blank Canvas and the smaller piece I have used an old background stamp (hardly every used!) stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with some very old holographic embossing powder which when it picks up the light does look very pretty. The small flowers are a die cut and the bigger flower is cut on the Cricut and has a brad in the centre which is attached to a simple little tag with a simple stamped sentiment.  I wanted to keep the background and embellishments fairly muted so the colours on the Rooster stood out more.
