Smile it's the New Year!

Hello faithful followers and crafters, Time for our January Stamplorations Theme and Photo Prompt challenge.  Our theme and photo prompt are:

You can choose to follow either the theme or the prompt and of course both for the chance to win a prize!
For my first inspiration make I chose to follow the theme by adding some splatters to the beautiful arums from the Smile - Dee's Artsy Impressions set.

I stamped both flowers and sentiments in white pigment ink and used coloured pencils on the flowers.

I toyed with the idea of adding something else but could not think of anything that would actually enhance, rather than detract, from the elegance and beauty of these flowers.

I am entering the Craft Stamper TIMI and Allsorts challenges.

  2. Absolutely stunning white Arums - how beautiful they look against the blue. A fabulous card with just the right amount of spatter. I'm still in Christmas hibernation (don't come out fully until after 12th Night on 6th January!), but am trying to do a bit of catching up with people even so. Happy New Year!
