I really let my creativity fly on this one to inspire and entice you! Get Inky! Stamps offers flowers in both physical and digital form but I wanted to show you how to get more out of the stamps by creating my own flower. The stamps I used were the bow in the Joyful Jar Drinks set and the curved ribbon in the Sew Sweet Cupcakes set. Both the bee and the sentiment came from the Buzzing Bees set (see below).
In order to make the center of the flower, I masked off the other parts of the bow with painter's tape. Once I inked it up, I removed the tape and stamped my image.
Next, I masked off everything but the right side of the bow including some of the circle part to ensure continuity.
Using the same tape over and over, I re-inked the same petal and made my way around the circle.
Depending on how closely you stamp the petals you may need to apply a mask to the stamped image to make sure the last petal doesn't overlap. I find the new post it notes that are sticky over the entire surface work best. When you stamp the last petal some of the image will be stamped on the post it note.
Once the flower was done I used the curved ribbon stamp from the Sew Sweet Cupcakes set to create the stem. The rest is history! I hope this project inspired you to think out of the box when it comes to stamping! Thanks for stopping by!
