I love flowers and plants that have round heads - agapanthus, alliums, dandelion clocks and that thistley thing I can never remember the name of. So when Less is More asked us to make a one layer card showcasing our favourite flower this week, it was bound to be a round headed one, and I have a few stamps that fir the bill.
The one I decided to use is a Penny Black one I've had for about 5 years. It is called "Quite Dandy" so I presume it is meant to be a cluster of dandelion clocks - but look at the leaves! Those aren't dandelion leaves! So for the purpose of this card, today it is being an agapanthus.
I've made a scene that reminds me of a recent holiday in Cornwall, where so many of the shores and clifftops had swathes of agapanthus growing on them, and the beautiful blue heads looked stunning against the blues of the sea and sky. I chose a cream card blank rather than white, for a softer look, and made the background using watercolour pencils before stamping the grass, using a Linda Luckin stamp I got in 2008 (I know that as she only produced stamps for a few months, all that year) and finishing with my agapanthus/dandelion
