Effective White Space using Botanical Love

I wasn't too sure what I wanted to create for my video this month. I googled my favourite stamp - Botanical Love and cam across a card similar to this one. It had a red background and a black case and I loved the contrast of the white flowers on the background. I wanted to create something with more of a spring-feel, and then the card was born ;) 

Use waterproof ink (archival) when stamping the flowers, that way you can remove the mask and then add the water rather than add the water and remove the masks. The masks became saturated and fell apart so I couldn't use them again.

I used the Botanical Love and Time to Say Thanks Stamps from Create a Smile, the rest of the supply list you can see on my blog.

Don't forget to join our little Create a Smile family on Facebook in our own group. There are challenges and general artwork inspiration from all CAS lovers!


  1. Beautiful, effect, Justine!
    I too have used this stamp set so often. I had to buy it after seeing your series last year: 1 stamp set, 3 ways. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Good to know! I literally use this stamp more than a heathy amount ;) I need a new one, mine is so dirty I can't see a thing through it!

  2. Where can I order this stamp set from? I am in Canada? Thank you.
