Here’s how to create this accent:
Step 1: Stamp the flower images and cut them out.
Step 2: Stamp zigzag stems using green ink.
Step 3: Adhere a flower to each stamped stem.
Step 4: Using embroidery thread, hand stitch stems and flower centers. Variation: Create an entire bouquet of flowers in various colors.
Apply one or two colors of ink to your flower stamp. Use a spray bottle to mist the inked stamp with water. Stamp the image on your cardstock or watercolor paper for a beautiful water colored look.
