It's time for a great new sketch over at Stamping 411, and this one is a bit different, with the chance to use a cluster of different items instead of one focal image…love it! The second I saw the sketch I knew I would be using the fun new paper daisies 🙂
Here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
My favorite part of these paper daisies is that they come white, and you can seriously turn them into anything you want…printed, colored, anything!!! I dyed them with Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade ink…only I realized I didn't have the reinkers yet for either of these colors, so I actually colored the daisies with the Daffodil Delight marker, then dunked it in water to mellow out the color. For the Poppy Parade, I applied the color with a sponge dauber, then sponged on some water after because I wanted to keep the color darker and not wash it out as much. While they were still a bit damp I sponged on more color to darken them up a bit.
I added some sticky half-back pearls, and in the center of my biggest daisy I stamped "hi" using the new Fabulous Phrases set. The dsp is Sunny Garden, and I used Peach Parfait ribbon, with a bitty button and some Linen Thread across the top.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you'll have time to play along this week!
