The Secret of a Perfect Flower with the Oval in Watercolor Shapes

Today we're going to learn The Secret of a Perfect Flower with the Oval in Watercolor Shapes! Last week we explored using the Watercolor Shapes stamp set...today we'll be creating a perfect flower with the large oval stamp and the small circle....check it out...


Isn't that a fun card? Just stamp the flower center (small circle) then using the large oval add the petals. Once the flower is formed use the smaller oval stamp to form the stem and leaves....quick, fast and fun!

1. Cut Poppy Parade cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score long side at 5 1/2 (card base).

2. Cut large scalloped rectangle (Color Contours dies) from Basic Black cardstock.

3. Cut 3 3/8 X 4 5/8 Basic White cardstock.

    *Stamp small circle (Watercolor Shapes) in Early Espresso slightly above center.

Secret: When stamping the petals below place the center end of the oval on the opposite side of the center circle--so that each petal will be perfectly aligned. This means that the center circle will be overstamped 8 times--once for each petal.

    *Using large oval (Watercolor Shapes) in Calypso Coral ink begin stamping petal at bottom slightly to right of center, stamp next petal directly opposite this petal...

Flower step 1

        * Stamp another petal 90 degrees on either side; stamp next petal directly across from this one...

Flower step 2

    *Stamp additional petals in between these so there are a total of 8 petals.

    *Using small oval, stamp stem and 2 leaves in Garden Green ink.

    *Stamp small dots (Artistically Inked) in Flirty Flamingo ink to accent the background.

4. Die cut small label (Art Gallery stamp and dies) from white cardstock; stamp Best Wishes in Memento ink. Adhere to card front with dimensionals.

5. Adhere white later to black layer & this unit to card front with liquid glue.
