Be happy and smile!

Hello Everyone! Aga here with one layer card I made using two stamp sets: Lotus and Beautiful Quotes. I feel like it's been a very long time since I created one layer card with stamped background, so when I opened the Lotus stamp set I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it.

I started off by stamping the sentiment from Beautiful Quotes set in the centre of my card base. Then I stamped images from Lotus set to create my background.

For some images I used solid stamps (coloured with watercolour markers) to add colour to my card but I also used pink marker to colour my flowers in. To finish my card I used a black pen to add little details to the whole design.

And that’s it! Another simply card that could be easily adapted to any occasion. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Aga, I just love the way you created this Lotus “garden” to surround the sentiment – really draws the eye to it!

This is one of most beautiful cards I’ve seen. I never thought of creating a background with Lotus. Now I can see many possibilities! Thank you for the inspiration, Aga!
