I used photos taken last year when we visited the beautiful Kirstenbosch botanical Gardens in Cape Town. I used a Scrapbook Generation sketch.

1. Attach the flower stamp to an acrylic block and dab well with archival ink.
2. Place watercolour paper onto stamping foam before stamping the image onto the paper.
3. Shade and colour the image with Neocolor II watercolor crayons and blend with wet brush. If colour is to bright tone it down by applying a layer of gesso.
4. Fussy cut around the image and embellish the center of the flower with pearls.
5. Use as an embellishment on your layout.
I used some pieces from the embellishment pack and a rub on quote from Kaisercraft.
Another stamped and cut out flower embellished with pearls.
