Masking technique - spring flowers

Good morning 

This week I've used a masking technique with the 
Woodware Clear Magic Stamp called Spring Flowers
available HERE

The stamp is described as a bouquet of flowers which is a lovely stamp, but I wanted to create a
 field of flowers

A step by step follows below

Using a Versafine Black Onyx ink pad, I stamped the image twice on to some
smooth white card

I attached four post it notes together and then stamped the image on to them
(centralising the image along the vertical join of the post it notes)

I detached one half of the post it notes from the other

I then cut along the outer edge of the two halves of the image and attached the pieces to 
the two stamped images on my white card

Next, I stamped the image again in the space between the post it notes

Above is how it looked when I removed the post it notes

I coloured the image using Promarkers
and cut to size

I matted the image on to some purple core'dinations card stock and added some
and then attached it to a card I made from an A4 sheet of 

Spring Flowers       Dottie Card Lilac      Glitter Glue - Stardust   Messages - ovals, elegant and circles  

Enjoy your weekend and keep crafting
