Patterned flowers

The October issue of Cards magazine features some cards done with these flowers.   It's such a neat idea and one of those "how come I never did this" ones!

Just stamp onto patterned paper, trim close to the inked lines and add some bling or a button for the center and you can have a multitude of patterned flowers to use on your projects!

I used chocolate chip ink from SU and black Staz On.  The dark brown gives a much softer look on the papers that I used.  Of the six flowers in the bottom of this photo, the three in the top row were done with chocolate chip and the others with the black Staz-On.

This shows how different inks will work on a light blue background.

The stamp I used is one without a lot of detail so it will be simple to cut out once you get the image onto the paper.

What a cool idea, I may have to use it on an upcoming card I have to do. Thank you for posting this.

Nice idea. A way to save some money on flowers so we can spend it on other scrapbook goodies....LOL.
