I saw a technique on Splitcoast Stampers called Cluster Stamping, so I 'had a go' , and this is the result, which I taught at my last card class.
I made a circular mask, and stamped through that directly onto the card, which is a recycled cardstock with a grey tone, and a darker grey fleck.
There were times I stamped over the edge of the mask too, which gave a more defined edge.
For the flowers (which are roses from a retired Layers of Color set) I used some old die inks that have the brand name "Whisper" - I overlapped some of the stamping, which was not an issue, and also turned the flowers for differing angles and a more relaxed 'look'.
I finished the card by stamping three bees on and around the flowers,
and livened them up with some Kindy Glitz on the wings.
A simple sentiment completed the card.
I am linking this to:
Stamps are over 3 years old
both the inks and stamps have been owned for years
