Flower border

CR00386 square

A change of style and medium — no Copic markers! — for this simple flower border.

I created a simple mask for the baseline of the border by tearing a piece of copy paper and taping it over the card. Then it was just a case of choosing some similarly sized flower and greenery stamps and a handful of ink pads and stamping away until I was happy with how it looked. Some white dots added a little detail to the flowers.

I was originally thinking about using it as a background for some critter or figure, but my other half said I should leave it as it is. So I did. Though I do reserve the right to add a sentiment as appropriate when I decide who to send it to 🙂
