LOC Blue for You

Flowers are beautiful all year round and this is definitely the case with the May Bouquet cling art stamp from Layers of Color.
The image has been coloured with SU Chalks/Pastels using a Blender Pen.  It has been cut out and hand dyed Seam Binding wrapped around the stems

I have also used DP from Pink Paislee, Basic Grey and Stampin' Up (all offcuts from my stash), braid and the Fleur de Lis Embossing Folder by Provocraft.
