Cornflower

Good evening all,
I love flowers but I like wildflowers, simple and beautiful, rather than all the fancy double blooms.  Cornflowers are one of my favourites, I love the colour and the lovely shape of them, so I was delighted to see that this stamp has been revived.  This is an old design from Clarity, now in a different size.

 I decided to have a rifle through the Clarity paper pads to see whether there was one to suit the cornflower and of course, there is.
The back of one of the papers is quite pale, but has all sorts of bits going on in the background.  I stamped the cornflower in blue archival then masked it while I stamped the words in the background.  I tore the bottom edge at an angle, inked round the edges in blue and curled over diagonal corners, then attached it to the front of the same paper.
I did colour the flower slightly, but didn't want it to bet lost, so left it fairly light.
