Flower print card - freestyle stamping

This card is nothing like I've done before, I just felt like having a play and being artistic...well, trying to be artistic...and I love it! Must try to branch out more often! There are two cards here, one is a Happy Birthday card and the other is a Get Well Soon card, but they're both pretty much the same.

I used my new Basic Grey Ornamental Flower stamp set for this card. I treated myself for making my Thank You cards for my wedding (which I've still yet to post...I promise I will soon!). I white embossed some and just white stamped others to create 'depth' and added the flower heads as decoupage cut outs. I coloured the flower heads in dark blue, and then used my white souffle pen to draw the swirl on them - but the dark blue ink hadn't quite dried so it slightly discoloured my souffle pen. But I really liked the effect and it matched the light blue paper perfectly so it looked deliberate ;-) I love it when accidental mistakes just WORK!
