Irises - my favourite flowers

Here are some more of my efforts with my Flourishes - A Year in Flowers Calendar set.

Image stamped with Versamagic Midnight Black and heat embossed with clear - this gives a beautiful gloss to the black.  Flowers were hand coloured with SU inks and paint brush.

This card is submitted for the following challenges.
I changed the layout just a bit to suit the proportions of the stamp - I really like this CAS look!

StampSomething - a touch of spring

I also made up another card along the clean and simple lines.

This image was heat embossed with Black embossing power and hand coloured with inks & paint brush.
Panels were cut & embossed using cuttlebug and spellbinder dies.
