Botanical Blooms begins with Melon Mambo

Why did I wait til now to purchase Botanical Blooms, it is amazing!  

 

Oh my, Melon Mambo with a hint of Pink Pirouette on Whisper White, I am in love!  These flowers remind my of the Lily's I had on my wedding day, that gave me my inspiration for my sentiment from the Suite Sayings set.  



The Botanical Blooms Bundle is just fabulous, not only do you get several flower and leaf stamps and thinlets in the bundle you also have this great border/edging thinlet - I have so many things I want to try with this set!



I used a sponge dauber with Pink Pirouette, then sponged with Melon Mambo to give it a little more intensity in the centre of the flower, the I used an aqua painter to create the veins from the centre of the flower, I really like this effect, here is a close up:
