I really do love zinnias. They come in all shapes and colors and are fairly easy to grow.

So when I saw this Stampendous Zinnia stamp CRQ170 on 123Stitch, I knew that I wanted it. Here is the result:
Entering this in Simon Says Stamp Flower Power Challenge

The Zinnia is actually stamped on some yellow dotted paper. It's hard to tell that from the picture.
DieNamics ZigZag Die
Sentiment: Hero Arts: CL545
Leaves: Hero Arts CL495 (also stamped on green dotted paper)
Background Paper: DCWV Citrus Stack
Enamel Dots

I embossed the zinnia stamp with Black Opaque embossing powder to make the outline pop - did the same with the leaves. Colored the center and highlighted the inside of petals with Copic Marker Y38.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and Blessings to YOU!

"The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace."
Psalm 29:11
