TIPsy Tuesday - Outline stamped DSP

When I was doing yesterday's layout, I needed a flower to finish off the embellishments and just didn't have quite the right design to cut on my Cricut.  So I stamped an image on designer paper and cut it out by hand.  I liked it so much, I did this card with several images.  When stamping, I tried different colors with different flowers to see what I liked.

To get the look, choose small pattern papers and an outline stamp.  Stamp directly on the pattern paper and cut out.

To finish these flowers, I used markers to color in the centers.  Normally when I use these stamps, I'm coloring in everything with markers or watercolor crayons.  This was much faster and I love the results.

Thanks for visiting today!
