New Darcy stamps - and they're lush!

I was so honoured to be asked by Darcy to play with her new stamp release for PaperArtsy. She has designed some lovely stamps that I am sure you will want for your own! 
To see the launch and some seriously impressive samples by some uber talented folk - please click here and please take some time to watch Leandra's video showcasing the stamps and samples - it's a cool watch!
I was given a clear colour palette to use (blue and red/orange) and this is what I made!
Using her first set I designed two projects on mdf board - loved this large single flower head - can be used for so much!
I enjoyed creating the butterfly so much I made three!
The second set of stamps have some really beautiful flower heads that have already come a favourite!
My photo doesn't show how bright this is! Darcy has also designed some new stencils and this project show some grasses and the edging from one set. Love the crinkly edging!
I wanted the flower to be the focal point and so kept this pretty simple - the leaves were cut from tissue paper painted on the reverse - took ages, was fiddly but totally worth it!
The third and final set from this release I think is my favourite! The background stamp flowers is so useful and the single flowerhead has been used LOTS on projects already! 
Again my photo hasn't shown how bright this little canvas is! I love the flowers - they have been coloured pretty delicately here but would look amazing in vibrant colours!
My final sample is the butterfly (with new stencil butterflies in the background) I liked the body of the butterfly on the stamp but really wanted add a little something to the finished project so used some rusty wire! The sentiment is selected words from the sentiment on the stamp set - you don't have to use it all do you?!
Thank you, as always, for joining me in this is exciting new release! Please do pop over to the PaperArtsy blog and see what my fellow wingmen have made and to see what other new releases there are! It's like Christmas all over again isn't it?! HUGE thank you to Darcy and all at PA HQ for letting me play with the new stamps - I LOVE them!
