Handmade flower stencil

I don't own any flower stamps yet, might get it one day. I am reasonably ok at drawing flowers and leaves (studying botany did come handy here ;) ). So I drew few flowers, I wasn't thinking of any particular flower, just a freehand. Cut out, saved the flower for later to do maskings, and used the stencil.
I had a super busy day at school, and when I sat down in the night to do the ink blending, it was incredibly relaxing! Used 3 different shades of yellow to ink the flowers. Black ink for the center,  and added some transparent glitter glue to give more dimension to the flowers. With a light hand, I went on to ink the white patches in between the flowers.
Was going to stamp a sentiment, but my darling daughter was working besides me on her homework,  and suggested not to stamp anything unless I want to spoil the beauty - really?? You can see I took her advice. (I trust her artistic intuitions,  she is much more better than me).
