Retro Rubber Challenge #132 - Flower Power

This is for the Retro Rubber Challenge #182 - Flower Power. One of the requirements of the challenges over on Retro Rubber is to use a stamp at least a year old. This set is an old Stampin' Up set from 2002 (wow - 20 years ago, and I still chose to keep this in my massive stamp collection). I stamped them in distress oxide inks and used those inks to water color the images. The leaves are a punch from Martha Stewart (also an oldie but goodie). I also used an old SU set called itty bitty which included this ink splatter that I use all the time on my cards. The sentiment is a sticker tag from aTim Holtz's Idea-o-logy pad. Just to give it a little more power and glam I added the colorful rhinestones on the some of the flowers.
