Ruth is setting today's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers and she'd like to see a riot of flowers on the blog this week!

Irises are one of my mum’s favourite flowers so when I saw this stamp at a bargain price I couldn’t resist getting it even though I keep telling myself I have enough floral stamps! It’s a lovely big stamp, almost 6 inches tall if you use the full length of the stem.

I stamped in a very light green ink so I could do a spot of “no line” colouring, using simple masking to add two flowers, and then coloured using a combination of Copics and coloured pencils.

The little dots were stamped with gold ink and then I used a gel pen and a glitter pen to add a few extras and deepen the gold.
