Blue and White Brushstroke Blooms

My card today showcases the beautiful new Brushstroke Blooms stamp set from MFT. This is a layering florals set, with solid images, so it’s perfect for creating quick florals with a painted look.

My inspiration actually came from an oriental bowl I saw on an antiques programme the other evening! I love the look of blue and white porcelain, and thought a pattern of blue flowers and leaves would work really well on a card too.

I chose three colours of MFT inks – Blue Yonder, Cornflower, and Blueberry – and stamped clusters of flowers and leaves onto a white card base. I didn’t do any masking, just selective inking for the leaves so they didn’t overlap the petals.

I finished the card with a very simple sentiment banner and greeting, and a few sequins.

I stamped directly on a card base. If you wanted to make multiple cards with a patterned background, try stamping a larger sheet of card and then cutting it down to add to several card bases.
