More Flowers at SDC 94

We had some sunshine yesterday, so that's it now, we officially have Spring! To celebrate Gez has chosen flowers for the theme this week at Stampotique.
I've painted a page from a chipboard album with lots of chalk acrylics, then stencilled through a Wendy Vecci stencil with even more paint. 
Time to stamp now, so I tried to be a bit random with Fax to Wolfgang in black archival over the whole thing and the fully painted flower. I've stamped Carol's Flower (small) in paints as centres and also over the buttons.

Dandelion Duo has also been painted in white and used as flower centres, and Abstract Foliage has been stamped along the bottom in various colours.
Beauty Verse has been used to finish it all off.
I was a million miles out of my comfort zone with this one, but I really enjoyed it once I got into the whole slapping the paint on thing, so thank you very much Gez for a fab challenge.
Please join in with us over at Stampotique, and have some fun with flowers.
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is anything goes.
Thanks very much for looking.
