Lovely Lotus {Waffle Flower Crafts}

Good morning, 

I am on the Waffle Flower Crafts blog today sharing a round up of inspiring objects inspired by the Lotus Flower. The Lotus flower is a fascinating symbol and image in many religions and cultures. Emerging from the murky depths of a pond, this exquisite plant is stunning representation of triumph over adversity.

I used the Lotus stamp set and Lotus dies to create this simple thank you card. 

I stamped the flowers onto watercolor paper with Distress Ink and colored them with "no line" watercoloring. I die cut the blooms using the Lotus die and set them aside.  I positioned the dies onto a watercolor panel where I wanted the flowers to be and die cut the shapes. 

I stamped the stems and sentiment and replaced the blooms, but rather than inlaying the die cuts, I adhered them with foam tape allowing some of the green note card base to peek through. 

Be sure to stop by the Waffle Flower Crafts blog for even more Lotus inspiration and fun finds. 

Thanks for stopping by!
