I love both the traditional look and also bright and modern. You can have either one with this flower as you can see in my samples today. I love the versatility of this flower.

Here are three samples of flowers created with the Black Eyed Susan Strip die from Cheery Lynn Designs.
For the traditional yellow and brown flower, I inked the edges of the petals. For the other two, I used two colors of cardstock along with white and on the white petals I inked a script background stamp using matching ink colors and created some texture that way. I also inked the edges of the petals.
I will be demonstrating how to make the traditionally colored Black Eyed Susan in my tutorial below.

Other products I used in the video are Quilled Creations Quilling Tool Set to roll the flower center, and Art Institute Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 2-Ounce.
The card below was created using the center piece only of the Black Eyed Susan. I think it looks a little like the purple clover weeds you see growing in fields in the summer. Always think outside the box with your dies so you can get even more use out of them!
