Hello! Today I’d like to share a very simple card I made using Flourishes Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. The floral image is from Vol. 1 and the sentiment is from Vol. 2.
I call this simple because the coloring was really very quick. Stamped in green Palette ink (waterproof) on 90 lb hot press watercolor paper, I added very little color – just a bit of blue and green. It’s a simple layout with a panel of textured blue I’ve had forever, an embossed background, and three little brads. Just enough to remind me how much I love to stamp flowers.
By the way, I got a chuckle from Linda’s comment on my fancy horse card the other day. She asked if I was feeling okay since it was not my usual type of image choice. Well, I forgot to mention I made that card for a 13 year old girl who dreams about horses day and night. I have, in fact, been using up my scant stamping time making special order cards. I enjoy stamping, no matter what I’m working on, but I do so love the flowers. Hopefully, there will be more of those coming soon, between the baby cards and kids’ cards. Thanks for bearing with me!
Have a lovely day, and I’ll see you again soon.
