365 Days of Botany: Day 30

Alison's pinwheel flowers stampified

A couple days ago a friend of mine posted a photo of what I believe to be a striped petunia of some sort like these ones, and said that she'd love to see them in my 365 project. They had such a distinct pattern, and I pondered whether there was something unique I could do to reproduce it, so I ended up carving a couple stamps!

I made one stamp slightly larger than the other, just to get a bit of variety - I was going to try a double layered stamp to do the stripes in silver, but the silver ink pad I bought was a complete dud! Anyway, it was fun to do a little stamp carving after not having done it for a while, and I think it was perfect for creating the pattern of these petunias!
