JoFY patterns

So currently Paperartsy's topic/challenge theme is "patterns"  I love to make patterns with stamps and this time used my new JoFY large flower stamps from JoFY45 which are just gorgeous.
As usual there have been some fabulous posts featuring great use of patterns - check them out.

This is what I did.
I used Sky and Ice Blue for the background, and then stamped the larger flower repeatedly over the page.  For the purples I used (searches brain as I did this days ago...)  Pansy, with touches of Plum and Wisteria. white Sharpie highlights, and Eggplant and Plum on the edges of the flower petals.
I filled in the spaces with the little flower seeds (?) and mixed Plum with Satin Glaze to colour them
 Life IS good - live it!!

as a bonus, you get to see the little journal page I did with Dolly and Little Dude the new minis from JoFY... such cute little fellas!

I made the background with the numbers  mini from Jo, and used archival inks in Vivid Chartreuse and Shadow Grey, a wash of limelight and concrete, then stamped the letters mini in Leaf Green and Watering Can archival (ie. slightly darker shades) and then a watered down wash of Limelight again I think..
Stamped the flowers from JoFY46 and the charachters on scrap paper and coloured with pitt pens.
