Wildflower foundness for spring birthdays

I love when you can use a stamp in lots of different ways, this wildflower stamp will have you inspired from the time you start stamping with it till you are done making lots of birthday cards. It has a timeless and elegant feel to it that makes stamping irresistible! You know it's a good stamp when I can make lots of different cards with it right?!!!

 Birthday cards are a lot of fun to create, what I love about this one is that all I had to do was to stamp the image 4 different times (in the corners) at different angles and I got a really elegant card. I added a wash of watercolor and was on my way to layer a sentiment and that is really all this card needed. But I had to go a bit further with the next one.

To take this stamp and this card one step further, I added gold embossing and did a simple orange and gold wash, the gold has mica flakes, So it adds another element of shimmer to an already elegant card. 


And to show off some of the beautiful line work this stamp has to offer I did a side border (or at least that is what I am calling when I stamp just one side of a card panel)



I like stamping just on one side of the card so that way I have space for a sentiment. 

And if you are just wanting to see what the stamp actually looks like without all the "fancy" stamping I have done. Here is a card where I just watercolored the stamped image.



So there are just some of the fun things I like to do with a floral stamp, You could easily make these into a wedding card, or a wedding invitation with this stamp!
Happy Creating!


BTW, I am entering this into the Stamping Sensations Challenge!
