Botanical Bliss Masked and Blended Flowers All In a Row

The Botanical Bliss stamp set is such a pretty one with some great motifs.   The flower one I have used today has proved to be very useful for all sorts of projects.  I have used it for creating many interesting backgrounds.  Well today it becomes the focal point of my card.

I love clean and simple cards and think I have managed to achieve that with this simple design.

I used the masking technique, by which I stamped the flower a couple of times onto some Post It Notes which have low tack adhesive across the entire reverse side of each note.  I cut them out and used them as masks, enabling me to stamp a row of pretty flowers with no overlapping or gaps.

So ... it works like this .... I drew a very feint line in pencil and stamped a flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then stamped another one on the line beside it leaving a gap.  I then covered both of my flowers with the two masks and stamped one across the gap.   Then I removed the first mask in the row and stamped another flower along the pencilled line, again leaving a gap between the last flower and repeated the process.

Once I had a line of flowers I erased the pencil line and chose an assortment of my Blends with which to add colour.

The sentiment I have used is from the Love What You Do photopolymer stamp set.

I finished off my top layer with a little bow.

...And voila !  It's colourful but quite understated, with lots of white space.  I really do like the overall effect.   Hope you do too.  Thanks for looking.

Bye for now.
