What, three posts in one day? Well, I'm waiting in for an appointment, so I'm taking the opportunity to catch up with cards I made over the last few days.
I was lucky enough to win the For the Love of Stamps set Lovely Lilies in the recent Allsorts Challenge birthday giveaway, and this is my first make with it.
All the elements - flowers, leaves, stem and buds, are separate stamps and van be combined to build up the flower image. I stamped each flower, masking it before stamping the next, using a Rich Cocoa Memento ink pad, then once all the flowers were stamped, used a Bamboo Leaves pad to stamp the foliage.
I coloured the image with Promarkers, using pencils for the delicate stamens, and added the image in brown ink. I'm still unsure whether black would have looked better.
I think I'll be using this stamp set a lot, the separate flowers mean they can be arranged as various varieties of lily, and done in white they would be perfect for sympathy cards.
