So I went with Clearly Besotted's Fresh Flowers. Next to decide the colours.
Everywhere in my garden is beginning to bloom at the moment and I have a lupin that is hot pink and sunshiny yellow, so I took the colours from that.
I made the background by using the ink on block technique described here, but masked off a section of the card before applying the ink - I simply die cut a rectangle in the middle of a piece of paper and used the aperture.
Next I stamped the flower over the background stripes and coloured in the flower using a water brush and inks, using an acrylic block as a paint palette.
I finished off the card with a simple sentiment from the same stamp set and a little sparkle in the flower centres.
