Smiling Flower (posted by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have a project to share using one of the new individual cling mounted flowers currently on offer on the website. These beautiful large flowers are perfect as centrepieces for your cards, and are sure to brighten anyone's day. I have chosen to use the Swirl Centre Flowerhead to create my card, as I love the overall design of this particular flower.

I created a wrinkle free distress background on a piece of watercolour card, and stamped the flowerhead twice onto a spare piece of watercolour card. I also stamped a large leaf from the Tangled Garden stamp set twice onto the watercolour card. I coloured the images with alcohol pens and added shading with pencils.

I cut the images out, and stuck them to the card, creating two layers on the flower. I then added some zentangle details using a fine permanent pen. I added a sentiment from the Amazing Birthday clear stamp set, and matted the background onto some black card to finish.

If you would like to know more details about this card, you can stop by my blog. Be sure to keep checking the Design Team blog every day this month for lots of inspiration from my Team mates using these beautiful stamps, Judith xx
