I picked up a second hand set of 4 Rubbadubbadoo Art Flower stamps that were being sold at my local craft shop. The idea is customers can take in there unwanted stamps which have been labled with the cost and who is selling them, then the shop takes the money for the stamps and keeps it until the seller goes in to collect it. I think it's a great idea as the set of 4 only cost me £4 - bargain! So the above card is made with one of the Art Flower stamps. I coloured the flower using watercoloured inktense pencils and then cut a mask and stuck over the flower. I brayered over the card and mask using a Big and Juicy ink pad in waterfall and then stamped swirls using white Brilliance ink. (The swirl stamp was from Hampton Art). I masked the main card and just brayered the ink to the top right corner and to the bottom of the card and went over it with the swirl stamp like before. A strip of green handmade paper was added to neaten the brayering and the flower panel was mounted onto a torn piece of the handmade paper which had, had its edges inked with the waterfall ink pad. The main card was lightly sponged with the waterfall ink and finished off with 3 flat backed gems in green and blue.
