Say it with flowers

Marion taught me this technique, of stamping then using a paintbrush, painting on ink colours afterwards. It's very relaxing, and gives a lovely effect. I used the Scribble Flowers stamps without the words, then painted them and added a gem drop before cutting them out and mounting on foam pads for dimension. The sentiment comes from the Scribble Sentiments set. I stamped it on an angle and added a kiss to make it look handwritten, which I think fits in with the informal flower designs.

This would also make a great 'get well soon' card by just changing the sentiment. Hope you're all enjoying your Sunday.
